How To Make a Message In a Clothes Pin

 Here is a great, quick and easy, craft, message in a cloths pin. I hope you enjoy it, as much as I did!!! :)

Paper, Pens/and or, sharpie, Clothes pin, scissors, glue stick

Begin by cutting a small piece of paper to fit on the front of the pin. if you need the measurements, it's 1 eighth of an inch long, and half a inch wide. (you might need to trim it a bit, to make sure it's not showing on the top) Then, draw or write anything you want on the front.

Cut the paper precisely in half, and glue it to the front of the pin.

Then cut about two inches long of paper, or enough to bend completely over the top of the pin on both sides, and be bent in the middle. :P (same with as other paper) and fold it in half, than fold the sides down.

fold, as shown, in the picture above. Do NOT glue it on yet.

Write/draw whatever you please, THAN (make sure it is folded correctly) glue it on.

I hope the instructions were clear enough!!!
Let me know if you tried it, we'd love to hear from you!
