My classroom does not have a theme ... unless color counts as a theme. I try to stick to purple, green and yellow, but I love color. So when I wanted to make cute clothes pins with magnets or thumb tacks to hold papers to the white board or bulletin board, I had hard time choosing one color or one paper choice. This is the result:
These were pretty simple. Choose your scrapbook paper, cut to fit the paperclip, break out the mod podge and go to town. Once you have them the way you want on one side, use hot glue to attach the magnet or thumb tack to the other side. I keep my clothespins in a small open box on my book shelf when the clothespins are not in use. These come in so handy, and make a great summer project, and I may even put some on Etsy or TeachersPayTeachers ... Let me know if you would be interested in these!
