A Creative Gift Idea by Kimie: Altered Clothespin Magnet and Card

HELLOOOOO Everyone!!
Here is a easy and simple gift idea that could be givin' not just at Christmas time; but anytime of the year. I love to make handmade gifts ( which I'm sure WE All when coming up with this idea I thought to myself, "What could I make that would be useable and enjoyable ALL the time"
 Hey why not a "Altered Clothespin Magnet w/ Card"!! 

  When the Hoidays are over the card can be put away with all the other cards we collect and still use the "Altered Clothespin Magnet" for ohter things: Hold pics on the frige or office, "To Do List", or a "Crafting Must Have" list !!! LOL!! 
" Endless" I say!!

Items Used:
*Clothespins- plain wooden ones form Walmart: you could take apart & paint or crakle paint yourself OR Michaels sales magnetic clothespins that are in many different color plastic ( with the magnets already on them).
*Magnets- you can find @Walmart in the craft area
* Tule /Lace-awesome finds I must say at Oh La La Vintage Treasures
*String Pearls
*Hot Glue Gun
*Any Other Yummy Embellies- You might have in a hore vault! LOL!
Hope everyone enjoys my gift idea for this 12 Days of Christmas event!!
