Altered clothespeg!

Well it has been a wee while since I last posted, I've just been a wee bit busy and not really managed to give you anything interesting to read.

I've been playing!!! I bought these giant wooden clothespegs a couple of weeks ago and thought they'd be a nice, different little gift, I've stuck a couple of magnets on the back and made them into note holder fridge magnets! I must admit to liking them so much that I'm going to buy more and do some for myself!

Anyway, what did I use?

I've had a 6x6 paper pad in my craft stash for ages, I love the muted colours, so tore up a few strips and stuck them onto the peg, then used Tim Holtz Red Brick distressing ink pad and also the photo distressing inkpad to age the paper slightly.I then used the Elusive Images Inspirational Words themeplate to stamp onto the whole thing with Grey Stazon.

I used the Eazi-Score plastic alphabet templates for the letter, cut out the letter from matching paper then stuck it onto some stiff card, I distressed the edge of the letter to give it a finished look, then cut a couple of strips of paper the give me the little 'paper ribbons', I used the Fastenator for the giant staples then a miniature one for the little ribbon, just added some paper flowers and some eyelets to decorate the letter.

I'm quite pleased with this little project and I will be doing more, they are a really sweet idea and have soooooo many different uses.

Thanks for looking in,
