altered clothespin

This clothespin lives on my kitchen desk - it sits upright just like in the photo - and it holds coupons that I or my dear husband might use - like Dunkin' Donuts, Starbucks gift cards, and so forth. I put them in here so I can find them quickly if my desk is piled with papers. :) I covered the clothespin with the patterned paper cut to size, and adhered with Mod Podge. Sanded the edges with a sanding block then swiped a Distress pad in Vintage Photo along the edges, then blended. All elements were securely fastened with E-6000. Since the photo (mounted on a black cardstock mat) can be changed out at a whim, one could also insert a poem or favorite verse in the silver binder clip. Teeny heart inside silver mini frame was hand cut and tied to the skeleton key above. The silver frame unit is stabilized with a dimensional. Thank you for stopping by!! 4-3/4" high wooden clothespin; 7gypsies Somme Blanc script paper; silver frame; silver binder clip; E-6000 industrial cement (Michaels); brown linen twine, skeleton key, pearl droplet, Vintage Photo Distress pad, Mod Podge, sanding block, blending tool, dimensional.
