Altered Project: Merry and Bright Holiday Clothespins

 (as seen in Paper Creations magazine)

I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I have a "thing" for altered clothespins. I made this traditional Christmas set, this teacher-themed gift set and now the merry and bright holiday set you see here.

I created this set with assorted strips of patterned paper and random embellishments from my stash.


Let's take a closer look...


Topped by a felt snowflake and jingle bell brad:




Metal rim tag, ribbon, word sticker and pearls finish this one off:




Pretty aqua and orange combo on this one — felt snowflake, button, ribbon, pearls and a label sticker:




Mini flashcard, holly sticker and pearls:




Chipboard hat, banner sticker and alpha stickers:




What do you think? Do you have a favorite? Here's what Paper Creations had to say:


"These darling clip-on clothespins provide you with multiple ways of hanging up those treasured (holiday) greetings. Decorate your...tree by attaching them to the branches or on a garland to drape along a mantel, shelf or over a doorway. And what about using them as fun tags or gift toppers?
"

I've linked this project up to the new issue over at Paper Issues — It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas. If you link up your holiday projects (through 12/8) you could win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store. Plus, your project could be featured on the Paper Issues blog, Facebook and/or Instagram. Linking up is super easy and I'd sure love to see some familiar names over there. :) Check it out starting at 12 noon EST today.
