Cute Clothes Pins

Aren't these cute? I saw these flowers on Juli Buhler's blog and I thought they would be darling on clothespins.

You can clip them to anything!

Stamp on several layers of tissue paper. Punch with the 5 Petal punch, layer and crumple a bit. I used Mini glue Dots to attach them to DSP covered clothespins.

Saturday was opening day of the Winter Carnival in McCall, Idaho. There were a lot of people there for the Mardi Gras parade and I've never seen so many dogs with snow boots on! It was a lot of fun! They were throwing Mardi Gras beads and candy and all kinds promotional items from their floats. It was so cold that the candy was frozen!
There were snow sculptures everywhere. Here the boys and George are standing by the Big Comfy Couch. It was a little cold and wet for sitting! :)
Doing a bit of sledding on lake McCall. Glad nobody fell through the ice!

  10. Love the clothespins! How do you adhere the DSP to the clothespins? Do you cut the strip into two pieces or do you just cover over the slot with the wire?
