Christmas Tree Cross Pins
Just a Thought
Glad I did. The ladies loved them. Most stated this is so different.

I had read some of the negative reviews about broken clasps on some of the pins so I ordered an extra box since they were so reasonable. When I opened the first box I was pleased with the appearance of the pins. The front of the pin is very nice and well made. But the actual clasp that you pin it on with is cheap. The "pin" part of the clasp is very thin wire. I tried to pin it on a cotton shirt and the pin wire broke. This happened on two pins. I took another pin out of the box and couldn't open the clasp because the hook part of it was bent in such a way that the pin part couldn't be moved. The next one I tried had a hook part of the clasp that was so wide open that the pin wouldn't stay hooked.
I finally found a few pins in the box that weren't defective but I was still concerned about the thin pin wire since it broke trying to pin it on a cotton shirt. I wanted to use them for lapel pins and I don't think the clasps are strong enough to pin on a suit jacket. Even on a thinner fabric, I think they would still just be a one-time use item, not durable at all (mainly the clasp)
I returned all five boxes.

Is worth the price
I bought these for the people that I want to acknowledge here at my place of employment. They send a message and also say Thank you. They are nice pins. I would buy them again.

I value the pin's unique design and that it is metal, not plastic. Of the 12 pins in the pack, 2 had no pin! There's no way to fix that.

Real Meaning of Christmas
I like the theme of the cross over the Christmas tree and was looking for something for the ladies in my Bible study class. The front of the pin is done well, but the actual pin finding on the back is poorly made. I had to repair half of the pins to make them function. They either would not open, would not close, or had dulled points.

Way too cheap!!!
I was very disappointed in this product. Out of 24 ordered, 6 broke immediately! I bought these to give as gifts, but I will not order again!!!

Beautiful pin true meaning of Christmas
I loved this pin and I would pay the price again. My husband and I bought 66 doz for our church and the pins were rationed out 1 per family. The cross supercedes the Christmas tree. It reminds us that
Christ came into this world out of love and that He died on the cross out of love for us that we may have
eternal life. Most of the pins were in good shape but a significant number of them had bad clasps so we had to check all 800 of them and tighten the clasps. Many of the pins were extremely sticky with glue. We had to remove the stickiness with a solvent. Despite all this the pins were beautiful and well received.
