Altered jumbo clothespins

Saw these bad boys in M's and decided why not.
It was great to use up scraps and
bits and bobs.
Even though they're plastic they are pretty sturdy
I used a folded 8.5x10 recipe on one
as a test and it held up really well it didn't tip over
or wiggle or flop about.

See the red one with the heart and "scribbles" behind it? That's my new die cuts I purchased at HL with my 40% off coupon. They are very intricate and after using it in my revolution, I changed things up by adding wax paper between the die and paper and also used it in the sissix (doh) and the wax paper actually helped in getting them out with a minimum of damage - you still had to poke out the remnants but since I don't have a fancy cutting machine, these are cool because I get the same result.

Jillybean Soup, Basic Grey, Recollections flower and fussy cut PL cards.

  1. How fun are these!? I have a big, white one from Pottery Barn sitting right here on my desk. I'm thinking it needs a makeover. :)
