12 Days of Christmas, Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of our Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share.
Today I am sharing a sweet little gift idea.

When I saw these cute little magnetic notepads at Walmart I knew right away that they would coordinate with the darling mitten stamp from the October SOTM so I bought a few to dress up for my craft booth.
I included a pen and tucked them into a snowflake dotted cellophane bag which I made a Kraft topper for.
Close To My Heart stamps used:
Mitten (October SOTM)
Sentiment: Perfect Fit-Holiday
Snowflake border:  Flakey Friends
I cut the mittens out with the Artiste Cartridge, then stamped them, and adhered them to a small wooden clothespin.  I punched a small hole at the top and added some Baker's Twine and a button.
Then I added some magnets to the back of the clips.

I am happy to say that I sold all of them and even had a customer suggest that I make just the mitten magnet clips to sell.  
I will file that idea away for next year.

I just LOVE the idea of using the mini clothes pins to add the little mittens to the top. And, making these sets for gift-giving is so perfect. Thanks for the fun inspiration!
