Being able to display the front and back views, as well as other perspectives makes it easy to refer to the pictures throughout the entire process. So that's where the clothespins come in.....Now you know me by now...I couldn't leave them just bare wood!
So, since it's been awhile since I broke out my trusty ModPodge I decided to use it and three different color coordinated napkins that I found at the party store.
The first thing I did was remove the hinge so I wouldn't have to work around it. Then it was simply cutting out the patterns I wanted to highlight from the napkin and laying it down on the wood that I had coated with ModPodge. Once I had finished covering both pieces, I let them thoroughly dry and then added two coats to finish them off; letting the first coat completely dry before applying the second coat.
I can see using these as a fridge magnet to hold reminder notes, pictures or a grocery list....actually, there are lots of ways you can use these around the office or home. And....there are plenty of ways to finish them, including hand painting, glittering (I glittered several of the regular size pins and used them to hold a banner at my daughter's wedding), you name it. Let your creativity guide you.....
I'm getting ready to start on a ballroom dance dress for a friend who competes with her husband and this is going to be so cool to have the pics posted!
