So here is my trick for you today...a really simple gift idea, and you can use up some scraps! 


Clothespin magnets!  Pull out some scraps of your favorite papers...just a tiny bit will do!  Trim down the size of the clothespin - yours might be slightly different size, so I wont give a measurement. Adhere with zipdry, or your favorite adhesive.  Cut a piece of adhesive backed magnet to the other side, and voila!  You have a cutie magnet you can pin stuff with!  Feel free to jazz them up a bit - add bling, buttons, or little tiny flowers.  I added a layer of dimensional glaze on top of the paper for a bit of gloss.

I made 2 sets of 3 (actually 3 sets were made...one by my 4 yr old!), and then I created a little gift tag for them, so I can clip sets to the papers and give them as gifts.  


My treat for you today...the printable gift tag sheet.  There are 4 tags on the sheet - 2 say "Thanks for sticking with me" and 2 say "I'm stuck on you..."  Hope you enjoy!! (Download here).  I printed mine on kraft cardstock, but you could do it on any color!  Lots of room to leave your own personal note, too.

My secret words for you today are: and treats

To be entered to win the grand prize you must complete the entire blog hop by Sunday October 30th at 11:59 EST

Winners will be announced on the forum on Halloween Day – October 31st!
