Greetings everyone! Anitra here and for this week's Watch Us Wednesday. I will be featuring these adorable mini clothespins. The Kraft Outlet offers them in a multi colored pack, Unfinished wood, and in a Black mini clothespin. I had so much fun using these darling little embellishments! For my first project I created this card using the clothespins to hold this sweet little banner.
As you can see these clothespins have been dyed to match my card. I simply did this by soaking the unfinished wooden clothespins in some ink and water. I left them for about an hour and dried them with a heat tool. This created a custom color that matched my card perfectly! In my next project I also dyed the unfinished wood mini clothespin.
For this project I used a Small Kraft Pillow Box. I decorated it using some lace, patterned paper, and Twill Tape. To add my sentiment I used another tiny Unfinished Wooden Mini Clothespin, which was dyed in a red ink to attach the tag. What a cute way to add a tag! Perfect for many different types of packaging!
For my last project I used the mini clothespin to hold this sweet picture of my little one. For the base I used a wine cork which I decorated using Oatmeal Cream Seam binding, and lace. I also added a flower and butterfly wooden button. To hold the mini clothespin I took some jewelry wire and twisted it leaving a loop at the top. I then added the mini clothespin and adhered it with a E6000. I hope you are inspired to try out these mini clothespins in your projects! Be sure to stop by the Kraft Outlet to see the different clothespins that are offered. For more photos on the projects I've created stop by my blog Stamping While They Sleep.
