Duran Duran had just released their 14th studio album "Paper Gods" in September of 2015, and has been the most celebrated and anticipated album in 5 years, since 2010's "All You Need is Now"! So, to celebrate, I want to take a little inspiration from Mark Montano's Emoji Pins project, and replace images of emojis with that of Duran Duran icons featured on the album cover.

PS: Imagine if Duran Duran would sell these during their concerts!

Step 1: Materials

To make these gorgeous pins, what you'll need are...

  • images of "Paper Gods" icons (you can Google Duran Duran Paper Gods and save the image to your computer)

  • thin cardboard

  • scissors

  • E6000 glue

  • Judikins Diamond Glaze

  • metal pin backs

Step 2: Google Paper Gods

Google Duran Duran's album "Paper Gods" and print out the images.

Step 3: Prepare the Cardboard

Cut out and glue 2 pieces of thin cardboard together.

Step 4: Mount and Cut

Now, mount the images to the cardboard and carefully cut them out.

Step 5: Make Them Into Pins

Now, to make the images into pins, add a layer of Diamond Glaze to the front and back of your image. This will make the pin bright and shiny. Then, finally attach a metal pin back to the back of your image with glue.

Step 6: Pin to Your Shirt

Once the pins are set, you're ready to wear them on your shirt!
