Look What I done MOM!!!!!

My oldest granddaughter Kirstie is always bringing her papers home from Kindergarten to mommy for her to see what she has done. She always just sticks them on the fridge with a magnet so I thought I would use one of the large clothespins I had so she could decorate her work a little more fancier. I used the Basic Grey paper Boxer (My favorite) and glued it to the clothespin, I sanded the edges and used some walnut distressed ink around the edges. I colored Tilda with my copics and then used some diamond glaze over all of her I then mounted her on the clothespin with pop dots. I then adhered an prima flower with brad and spacers to the middle and punched out some leaves and glued that to the clothespin. I then computer generated a saying to hang off of the tiny clothespin I had glued on. So I hope Kirstie will like her school projects held with this.

Here is a close up of the clothespin
