I hate the plastic chip clips. They’re ugly and always seem to break. Plus, I’m not going to spend money on something like that when I could easily make it. That’s pretty much my outlook on life, my husband hates it. haha.
For this mini project, I’m using plain old clothes pins, paper scraps and modge podge. It’s simple, cut strips to fit the clothes pins, adhere with a dab of modge podge and a paintbrush (on both surfaces), dry and enjoy! Because I love all things map-related, I used some scraps from a piece of map gift wrap. I love that different sections of the clothes pins emphasize the light and dark parts of the map.
This project shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes, depending on how many you’re making, perfect for during nap time. And don’t they just look adorable sitting in a glass jar on the counter… don’t mind me, I’m just a pretty little clothes pin.
