Ball-ended Pins

Chris from Canada says:
After you use those handy ball-ended pins for eyeballs, cabinet knobs or whatever, save the cut off ends (if you can catch them as they fly across the room.) They make great swing hinges for small doors in furniture items where you don't want a visible hinge
in 1", work as door or cupboard hinges in HS and QS and when bent and baked into a Fimo cooking pot or mug and painted to match make a much more sturdy and realistic sized handle than using Fimo.

Yeah, I know these pins are fairly cheap to buy, but "waste not, want not" even if the waste seems miniscule.
