They're not just for clothes anymore

Have you seen these ENORMOUS clothes pins? I have been fascinated with them ever since I saw them. I decided that I would like a convenient place to put recipes while I am cooking and thought that this would do the trick. It is up off the counter, thereby reducing the number of spills, and it is also up high so you don't have to squint to read the recipe. Pretty sweet, huh?

Cast of characters for this project:
1 large clothes pin (I found mine at Craft Warehouse in Vancouver WA)
Some scrapbook paper of your choice
Mod Podge (for gluing down the paper)
Black stamping ink for edges
Vinyl lettering (if you don't have access to vinyl then just print the letters on your scrapbook paper)

That's it. EASY-PEASY folks!

I have some more of the clothes pins, I think I will customize them for each of my grandchildren and display their pictures in them. OHHHH, the possibilities.
I'm joining the fun over the Funky Junk Interiors, go by and check out all of the great ideas.
