Time for Some Trick or Treating

Hello Stamping Friends,

Time for some trick or treating and the Sisters in Stamping are giving you some great treat ideas today. So most people think of treats for Halloween as candy, right? Well, today I decided to make a treat that will last much longer and will probably (well, I guess it depends on your mood. I mean, if you are needing some chocolate the candy would be better) bring you more satisfaction. I made a treat for the adults. Some decorated magnetic clothespins that will help you hang those precious Halloween drawings from the littlest of Trick or Treaters.

To package them, I make a small card to clip them to. Just making it a little more exciting to give as well as receive. I think these are great teacher gifts too. They always have a paper or two (who am I kidding, many more than that) that they need to keep track of.

These are very easy to make. Just adhere (using sticky strip, snail adhesive, or tombo multi-purpose adhesive) the designer series paper to the clothespin. Attach a magnet to the back and then if you want you can attach a few little fun images to the bottom portion of the clothespin.

And finally, I place them in a clear envelope to give the gift. It's the perfect size to "wrap" it up
