12 Days of Christmas--Day 10--Clothespin Magnets


Only a few days left until Christmas!  My kids are so excited and repeatedly ask 'how many more days till Christmas?'  :-)  It's fun though to have their excitement and anticipation. 
One of the things I made up this year, to sell at the Bazaar that benefits the preschool my daughter goes to, are these clothespin magnets.  These are the two 'holiday' options that I had available.   
The gingerbread man comes from the Scentsational Season stamp set and is cut out with the coordinating Holiday Collection Framelits.  The Designer Paper comes from the Polka Dot Parade package (Real Red and Old Olive) and the Espresso comes from the Color Collection DSP Stack (Neutrals). 
The snowflakes were cut out using the Snow Flurry Bigz die.  I love the touch of sparkle that the Silver Glimmer Paper brings!  The Designer Paper is from the Festival of Prints DSP Stack. 
If you want to see what the magnets look like on the back, you can see THIS post. 
These clothespin magnets are cute packaged, or they can also make a cute addition to the tops of your presents--attached to a bow or holding a tag onto a bag.

Hi Cherie--

Thanks for you kind words! I appreciate it. :-) I actually ordered the magnets from Amazon. The company I purchased them from doesn't seem to be around anymore, but there are many other people that sell the rare earth magnets as well. If you do a search on Amazon you will come up with many options! The size I used for the back for the clothespins was the 1/4" by 1/16" discs.

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
