Beaded Valentine Charm Craft Kit
Great for Girl Scout Swaps
I was searching for an easy craft for my daughter to complete for her Girl Scout Swap party. This was perfect! We completed it quickly and it was easy. You just have to straighten out the pin before putting the beads on. It is easy enough to straighten and rebend. Great purchase!

These are very pretty when finished, the only drawback is that you have to straighten the pin to fit the beads around the bend then bend the pin back into shape. This isn't a big deal if bent correctly, but one little miss bend and your pin can look a little misshapen.

Great Craft for Time to Talk and Build Community
I brought this product as a craft project for a college dorm. The students loved it! It was easy, yet allowed for some creative opportunities. It was a nice, inexpensive gift to give someone else.

Cute but Impossible
I have to agree with the other commentors: I am an experienced crafter and I couldn't get the large beads around the bend of the pin. Better thought needs to be put into them.
As to those who think the bracelets would be a better idea, those require needles and adult supervision which is why I tried the pins this time.

Would recommend with a caution
I agree with the other reviewers that the pin had to be bent almost straight in order to slip the beads past the bend so that you could pin it onto your clothes. However, with adult help, this could be done and they turned out cute! I might buy these again, knowing that adult help is a must.

Nice product, but missing items
This was an overall nice product, but we where missing a few heart charms. You did provide extra pieces there where no charms in the extra pieces. Maybe in the future you might want to think about adding a few extra charms in with the extra pieces.

Required Adult Help
I have to agree with other reviews :( The price was good, but the children making these at our school had a really hard time bending the pin for the beads to slide around the bend and not all of the beads fit.
I think we'll order the bracelet instead next time.

cute but difficult
I really liked the idea of these, and had done some Thanksgiving ones previously with no problem. However, the beads for these don't fit quite right. I purchased these to do with special needs adults. they could not do, too difficult to get around the bend on the pin and you couldn't use all the beads like the directions said, it was too long if you did, so I ended up putting them all together (made a following directions activity out of it instead) Would have enjoyed these more if the beads would have fit

I was not happy when my Mother who is 86 could not get these done correctly. You can not get the larger beads around the end of the pin without bending it almost straight. I will not buy anymore of these. Bad thing is I bought these for St. Patrick's Day and Easter. What a waste of money!
