Put a Crest on Your Breast! (a DIY)

(awful, perverted title - I know)

So, I'm sure its the 203710701734th time you've seen and heard about the Balenciaga FW0708 collection, you have to admit - its freakin' GORGEOUS! I am in love with the crested blazers and don't exactly have 5000 dollars to spend on it, so I decided to kind of make my own! I went to Jo-anns and picked out royal crest iron on's (and surprisingly, they had a lot to chose from). Instead of ironing them to a blazer (I got one from Issac Mizirahi @ Target), I decided to make them into pins, in case if the crest doesn't go with what I'm wearing.
Just take the crests, trace unto card stock and cut a little under the lines, and glue with E6000 (best glue EVER). Let dry, then glue on a flat backed pin and TaDa!

pin onto your blazer (or whatever you want) like so:

I'm 'delurking' to say that I LOVE your idea of using pins to make for a more changeable look. Looks like I'll be heading over to Target soon...
