Washi Clothespins & Sneak Peek

Ever look at a word and just think "I'm not spelling that right?"  That's how the word clothespins seems to me.  Maybe it's because I haven't see a full size clothespin since my Grandma Barbara used to do the laundry and hang it out to dry behind their house. 

Today I had a full craft day with Callie.  We worked on canvases and painting and Convention swaps.  She's quite adept with the Big Shot, I must say.  I think it might be her favorite product we sell!  That and the Circle Framelits because they look like bracelets and rings.  The wonder that comes from being a toddler!

Anyhow, today's project is my general 3D swap for Convention.  I wanted to do something that I would do at my own holiday camp that was quick and also an easy embellishment for a gift during the holidays.  You just pin it on to the bag or bow or tag and there you have it - a special homemade touch in just a few minutes.



The pins have our new **SPOILER ALERT** Season of Style Washi tape from our upcoming Seasonal Mini Catalog.  The stamped image is from A Round Array and is punched out using the 1/2 Circle Punch and 7/8 Scallop Circle Punch.  Callie helped me put the "stickers" on the back so they are elevated with two layers of dimensionals.

I did cut magnets and put them on the back.  I figure today's Callie artwork would look great in the one I keep, though she did say it was for Daddy...

Have a craftastic day,
Stacy
