Friday????...........Really????

Just a little bit of Unity to share in today's Friends w/Flair........

I have been into the clothespin lately.  I don't like them in their plain state, so I have stained mine.
These have been stained a dark walnut and I have more stained in old barn red and a nice shade of blue.
I made these to be used for clipping a card onto a gift / gift bag.
The possibilities are endless!!
Each one has a little scrap of burlap, some October Afternoon paper, button, twine, and a stamped sentiment dangling from it.
The "for you" sentiment is from an {ippity} kit, the others are PTI.
Here is another view of a few of the clips.......
You could even add a magnetic strip to the back and the recipient could cut off the tag and continue to use the clip on their refrigerator!! 
This particular set is going up for sale in my Etsy Shop!
I have plans on making more of these............they are a great way to use up tiny scrap pieces.  I hate throwing away any part of my designer papers.
