First of all, trace your clothespins onto the scrapbook paper.
Cut it out.
I find that clothespins sometimes want to fall apart after some use (maybe their made cheap nowadays). So to hopefully prevent that, I added hot glue at the back and front of where they clip on.
See that little indent? Yeah, there.
Try to get the glue only in the crevice.
Once dry, add a layer of mod podge all along the edge.
Lay the paper onto it and smooth out.
Then add a thin layer over top and let dry.
Once dry add another coat of mod podge. I stopped there, but feel free to do 3 coats if you like.
Now you can cut a strip of magnet for the back.
The roll of magnet is adhesive, but I didn’t think it would hold up.
So I hot glued that sucker on.
Press it on firmly until dry.
Then, to clean it up a bit, I trimmed off some of the magnet piece so it was a little more flush with the clothespin.
And they are done.
Try them out.
Hang the kids pictures, any announcements or reminders and you’re good to go.
Plus, my kids like the novelty of opening the pin to clip on their picture.
Aren’t they cute!? Now go make your own!!
