Gingham Garden Clothespins

Good Day! Thank you for stopping by! I have a little giftie to show you! Are you ready? This is fun.. and so easy to make. These are clothespins I purchased at the Dollar Store. 36 pins for 1.00 – barbain! I covered them with Washi Tape – super easy peasy! I then cut and adhered magnet to the back of each so you can use these on the fridge as little holders for those special things, like the kid’s artwork, or a business card, a to-do list, etc! They are quite addicting to make, just to warn you!

Also, on the packaging you see those cute little embellishments? Those were made with simply pressed clay. This stuff is super cool, as are the Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds. Just a few helpful hints when using this stuff:

1. Make sure to wear gloves or you will look like an Easter Egg – seriously!

2. Make sure you use your embossing buddy on your gloves and inside the molds too! If you don’t, picture gum on the bottom of your shoe on a warm day and it sticking to rubber gloves.. not pleasant LOL!

3. Be careful when adding reinker to the clay.. just a few drops goes a long way.

4. You may want to wear an apron or something that you do not mind getting ink on – just in case of accidents.

5. After putting the clay into the molds, I found 1 hour in the freezer works really well! Then, pop them out.. set them aside to dry up to 24 hours. From there, you are good to go! Stick them on anything for an extra cute embellishment!

Here is a close up photo of the clay after it was out of the molds:
