I think I loved this paper more than the top I bought! So, when I packed the top, I kept the paper. I knew I was going to use it for something, and I was thinking more along the lines of a tissue flower. However last night I used just a wee bit of it.
I wanted a low commitment craft. As in, low time commitment. Drinking wine with the Hubs, watching some great British crime drama (The Bletchley Circle), and a small craft which I could do without concentrating so much. Hence the clothing pins.
I know its been around for a while, and its been on many blogs and in crafting mags, but a few months ago I was reading Silvina of Tazas & Cuentos talk about how she was addicted to her decoupaged clothes pins, and how she couldn't stop making them. So, it was her post which encouraged me to try this. It really was simple. Just thin strips of tissue paper, some watered down white glue, and well thats it!
All I needed was about an inch and a half strip of my tissue paper to make ten double sided clothes pins.
I can hardly wait to hang a length jute and use my new clothes pins for some pretty bunting!
Have a great day! Hope the Holidays are going well! We are snowed in (boohoo)!
