I’ve been meaning to make these stamped clothespins for a while. I already had everything on hand so I took a few minutes today and finally got them done. Check that one off my ever growing list.
Those plastic clips don’t always work on all types of bags, but clothespins do and they’re cheaper. I used these stamps to spell out the words I needed.
I made 6 different clips to start with but might add more later, as needed.
I used 2 of them immediately.
And the others are hung from a shelf in the pantry until needed.
Do you have something you’ve been putting off that will only take a few minutes to finish? I’m glad I finally decided to just get it done. Now, let’s see what else I’ve been putting off.
brilliant! I ALWAYS need extra clips and I have a TON of clothes pins that I bought for projects that I never actually worked on!!
very cute idea,,I use clothespins but hadnt thought about stamping the words on there.
I LOVE this!
Such a simple project, but I love how it turned out. And it’s functional!
I think I have Christmas gift ideas now. Thanks!
so clever! this is something i need to do!
What a great idea! These are so cute!
Love the simplicty of these. And I just bought a pack of clothespins to hang some undies for a Bridal Shower. Yeah!
You just rocked my world!! Why havent I thought of this before? THANK YOU!!!! I might just have to feature this! Ill let ya know when I do 🙂
Great ideas and I like the way you showed the exact type of stamp pad to get. We get our mail delivered via mail slot in our door but my neighbor uses a clothespin like this to clip to “Outgoing Mail” to be picked up by mailman. How can I decorate a clothespin to attach to the mail slot for outgoing mail? Any ideas?
I like these! I think it will help at our house because it seems like we always have 5 bags of something open at once. And then they go bad. Drives me crazy. I’m always saying don’t open something til the first one is gone. But if they only had a certain number of clips maybe that would be a good reminder and visual cue (esp. for my 30 year old hubby)
Great idea! I am making these for Christmas gifts!
I love this project! I need some of those stamps now! lol. I think they would make a great gift and would love to have you share them on my Saving Christmas Blog Party. http://spartasavings.blogspot.com/2010/11/saving-christmas-week-4.html
you clever thing, I love it. I have those same stamps from target’s $1 section, I’m so making me sum of these and btw I thought I was the oly one using clothespins glad i’m not alone =)
These would make super cute place card settings, stamped with each guests name. 🙂 Cute idea!
What a great idea, so easy and soooo cute. Thanks for sharing.
I so need to do this! Thanks!
Where did you get your stamps?
Cute idea and so easy! I use plain old clothespins but adding the stamps would definitely be much cuter!
I love ’em!! I’m totally going to copy you and make some too. I have all the supplies on hand and I am a chip-clip-a-holic 🙂 Thanks for sharing your great idea.
They turned out great and this project has so many applications! P.S. You have a really steady hand.
That’s great! I would love for you to come link this up at my Strut Your Stuff Party, and enter the giveaway as well!
