Giant Acrylic Clothes pins

I found these giant acrylic clothes pins at our local dollar store and decided I could alter them with paper.
Well this is what I came up with and they are very cute/pretty if I do say so myself.
They came in different colors but I picked up the clear ones and they measure 6 inches long by an inch and 3/8.

There is a space on the back side of these so the DSP just slides into it and I secured it with some mini glue dots ; I then just added punches and ribbon to decorate them.
For the pink and red one I used the new Sending Love Specialty paper and the With All My Heart stamp set, the new Extra Large Flower punch, Pretty in Pink Epoxy Brads and the Beautiful Wings embosslet all from the new Occaisions Mini catalogue.I added a Real Red gross grain ribbon bow( I haven't got the new satin ribbon yet, but it is on it's way), there is also some dazzling diamonds on the red areas of the flower at the top but the picture doesn't show this.

The second one; I used the Tea party DSP from the IBC, I stamped the scalloped circle from the Vintage Labels set in the SAB catalogue in Certainly Celery then added a Cameo Coral mini flourish and a basic black "friends" from the Tiny Tags stamp set in the Occaisions Mini, a celery ribbon from the retired SAB from last yeat and a tiny tag "for you" punched with the new punch in the new mini was tied on with a small piece of linen thread.

Hope you enjoy!
I am off tomorrow for a stamping/crop weekend retreat that my upline is having. It should be a blast and I hope to get alot of stamping done. I will share when I get back.
