There's really nothing wrong with a plain clothespin. But, I thought I would "jazz" mine up, just because I could! This is a very quick, easy project. You can use them as fancy chip clips, as magnets on your fridge, with a magnet glued on the back, or whatever purpose you can imagine!

So pretty! I use clothes pins here and there and never thought of making them pretty as well as useful. Thanks for the great idea :-)
