Scrapbook Paper Covered Clothes Pins!

I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics to share my scrapbook covered clothes pins that I made!

I bought a pack of 50 clothes pins from Walmart and grabbed a few sheets of scrapbook paper from my supplies, mod podge and my craft knife. I started out by covering one side of the clothes pin with mod podge.

Next I laid the clothes pin down on the scrapbook paper.

I gave the mod podge about 15 minutes to dry (some took a little longer. If it's not completely dry then it does not cut as well). Then I used my craft knife to cut around the edges of the clothes pin.


Ta da! I made 2 different sets. I did cover both sides of the clothes pin so that no matter what they get used for both sides are pretty :)

I love this scrapbook paper!


After making these I really want to try to make some glitter covered ones next to use for displays. While working on this project it gave me lots of ideas for fun clothes pins to make, such as math themed ones for my math displays and I need to get some beach/tropical themed scrapbook paper to make beachy ones too. I'll be sure to share any ones that I make in the future!
