Clothespin Refrigerator Magnets

Just a quick post today to show you some refrigerator magnets I am making for a craft fair.  They are a great way to use up your scrap papers, and will look really cute holding your favorite treasures.

To make the magnets, I covered the clothespins in a variety of Designer Series paper and then brushed over the paper with Modge Podge to create a good seal.  To put the paper onto the clothespin I used Sticky Strip to provide some extra hold.  I added some ribbon, buttons, and a tag for embellishment, and then added a magnet strip to the back. 

I made over 60 of them in a short period of time, and you can decorate them for any occasion.

This would be a great kids craft too.  Let them help you make their own to display their school projects or pictures. 

Stampin' Up! sells everything I used today except the clothespins and Modge Podge.  Use your scrap Designer Series Paper, buttons, and small pieces of ribbon to decorate, and have fun creating your own.
