I got the idea for these on Etsy.com awhile back, and I must say that they’re one of the easiest and cheapest crafting projects ever. I picked up the clothes pins from Dollar Tree and the scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby at 50% off. Total cost: less than $2.00 for 24 clothespins. If you’re looking for a quick gift for your kids’ teachers, a gift exchange, stocking stuffers or whatever, read on…
If you don’t have an Exacto knife , you can just trace and cut the scrap paper with scissors. I used Mod Podge to glue the paper to the pins, and to add a protective coat on top.
Once done, I cut out some Christmas trees with my new Cricut and used glue dots to tape a gift card to the back of each hand-made card.
And nope, clothespins aren’t just for hanging clothes any more. They’re perfect for organizing papers, clipping bags and using as magnets.
Teachers’ gifts now done. Easy breezy, nice and easy!
