Altered Clothespins


One of my favorite words is hello.

All of the sad goodbyes from our military moves were preceded by wonderful hellos.

I was inspired by the

Papertrey Ink Contest:Gift Packaging Project.

I needed a little something to clip to a gift I have for a new family that moved to my area recently. 

I can't wait to greet them with a "hello"...we've been sicky in our family and I've been holding off on giving them our welcoming gift (I don't want to greet them with new sickies too!).

on Pinterest were what I based this project on.

I adhered patterned paper to clothespins (after separating them from the coil) with Scor-Tape and sealed them with Mod Podge.

The hardest part was replacing the coil~if it doesn't fit well, it might be flipped.

It should sit comfortably and not have to be forced into place.

Have a blessed day~thanks for stopping by!
