Card Holders for a Memory Tree

I was asked to make a decorative holder for cards to be placed on a Memory Tree to celebrate a 90th Birthday.  The guests are being asked to place a sentiment or memory on the envelope of their card and it will be placed on a "Memory Tree."  I came up with decorated clothespins.  They will be able to hold any size card and will hang nicely on the tree.  The Designer Series Paper matches the paper used on the invitation.

After doing these, I think I am going to make some for a Christmas Tree.

To make the hangers, I placed a piece of Sticky Strip onto the back of my Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper that was cut to fit the clothespin.  I then added a layer of Mod Podge.  Next, I added a decorative bow placed on with a glue gun.  So the clothespins would hang onto the tree I tied a piece of Linen Thread through the top.

The following Stampin' Up! products were used:
Designer Series Paper:  Gingham Garden #129310
Ribbon:  3/8" Stitched Satin - Gumball Green #126848, Midnight Muse #126847, Primrose Petals #126844, Raspberry Ripple #126845, Summer Starfruit #126846, Linen Thread #104199
Adhesive:  Sticky Strip #104294
