Say what??? I have seen different versions of these floating around and thought that they were such a stinkin awesome and CUTE IDEA. Even better- Clothespins and tacks can be bought at the Dollar Tree! I already had everything else, so $2 craft, woop woop.
So here is my version.
I just have to toot my own horn and say how much I love, I mean L.O.V.E!!!! these clips.
Honestly, I started with the painted ones, then was toying around with scraps from another project (later) and thought I'd give the chevron a try. Best. Idea. Ever. Right??
So here's what I did.
1.Simply put, I started by hot gluing the tacks to the back of each of the clothespins. I initially thought, oh yea, 12 will be enough. BAHAHA. Right.
2. After that, I painted 6 with the base color of white, and 6 white a soft yellow. I let them dry while I worked on something else.
3. How cool right??
4. Yep, super cool. Used the tip of a Qtip to make the dots.
For the Chevron ones, I just traced one with the clothespin and then continued to cut 2 strips of each color since there were 6 colors.
Then, maybe I had a little fun stacking them together to take this picture. Seriously, can you really blame me?
And there you have it my friends. A really awesome office staple when you
live work in a cubicle and have LOTS of papers that need to be visible/accessible really quickly. They are so cute and so functional and I might just have to make a million more.
Well, maybe not really a million.
Have a great weekend :) Back Monday with more loving on my Hobby Lobby Chevron Burlap Ribbon!
