Holiday Presents

Submitted to Anything But a Card - Debut Challenge

I've made a few of these clothespin and tuna can candle holders, and people really compliment me on them. I decided to make a bunch for holiday presents!  This one made with EP Country Drive Paper.  The ribbons are Passport trim and Websters Pages.  The other embellies are from UmWow Studios. 

In past projects, I inked up the clothespins. Since these were light airy colors, I decided not to do it this time.  I like it, and it was SO easy to make!!

Here's the project:

Craftily yours,

  1. This is soo cute! I've seen these here and there but haven't made one-YET. Yours is adorable! Now I just need to save a tuna can! Thanks so much for joining us at ABAC challenge!

  2. I haven't seen one of these before I must confess so it was a lovely surprise for me! Great idea with the pegs and I love the adition of the ribbon and lace.
    Thanks so much for joining us at ABAC's first challenge and I do hope you'll join us again soon.

  3. I absolutely LOVE this project!!! Sooo cool! Thanks for joining us at ABAC :) :) :)

  4. Thanks for sharing your super creative project with everyone at ABAC! I've never made one of these - but I'm off to raid the laundry room and recycling bin. This is so fun and colorful and would make a great gift. Those larger size LED candle lights for pumpkins would be perfect for this, too. TFS - I look forward to seeing more of your work :)

  5. I love your clothes pins. I need to get some mini ones and decorate them now. Thanks for joining us over at ABAC.

  6. Beautiful project! Such creative upcycling. Thanks for joining us at ABAC!
