Beautiful Butterfly Clothespins


In the mood to make something pretty?  My daughter's wire note/photo holder requires clips to help hold papers in their place.  Rather than leave the clothespins plain, the crafter in me saw some shabby chic potential.  Of course I used my favorite burlap string from May Arts (SM 10), it's the best when you want to add a little more texture to project, but a piece of ribbon would be too large.  After finishing a set of decorated clothespins, you could add a magnet to the back of them if you wanted to use them on your fridge.

Happy Crafting!  Come on by my blog, More Paper Please, and say HI!
