Hello! A Giant Clothespin of CUTENESS!

Well, my vacation is officially over, so back to the routine it is. I did, however, make a discovery...the coffee sleeves at Dunkin Donuts have a different pattern on them. I feel as though there is a whole new world of coffee sleeve crafting opening up before my very eyes! HA!!! It's the little things that keep me going. Really. It is. Just sayin'.

Today I want to share a super cute project I created with Stampendous! stamps and a bit of May Arts burlap string.

Hello! Giant Clothespin


I began with a Bare Elements clothespin from Creative Imaginations and I stamped the Distressed Type Cling stamp onto some Stamp'n Up! paper I had in my scrap bin. I layered the paper onto the clothespin adhering it completely. I then stamped the typewriter from the Vintage Typewriter set onto bristol and cut it out. I adhered that with foam tape and then wrapped the Burlap String around the pin (through the spring) and tied it off to finish the pin! I did mine with the clippy part facing downward so it can be hung on the wall to hold stuff, but if you want it to stand up to hold things like recipes or photos you can do it the other way around.

I love how easy this was and yet, how adorable it turned out! These are a great way to present gift cards and such, too! Very fun project! I hope you have a super fantastic Monday!!! I'm excited to get back into my usual blogging schedule and such!

Jingle Out.
