Clothes Pin Note Holder

I hope everyone has been having a restful and creative weekend.
This week the MIM challenge is Layered Embossing and some new goodies came in the big brown truck so of course it was time to play with them.
 
I used Papertrey Ink's Framed Out #12 stamps and die, white, red and clear embossing powder, an alpine fabrics heart button, studio g glitter glue and some fabulous Sterling 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon to make this really cute tag.
 
So once the tag was made the question was... What do I use it on? A few years ago I made some clothes pin note holders for my grandson's teachers and every since have wanted to make one for my desk but just never got around to it. Well this weekend was the time and it turned out great.
 
The glitter glue frame was made by placing the finished tag under an acetate sheet and tracing it with the glue on top of the acetate with the glitter glue. Let it dry over night and presto a glitter glue frame. Just a note this does not work with Stickles (it is too thin) Studio g is a very thick glue so it works great.
I painted the clothes pin with black chalkboard paint and attached the tag with glue dots. Wrapped some 3 Girl JAM Holly Berry crinkle ribbon around the bottom and attached the charms I made of my grand kids with 3D glue dots. If you have been reading my blog for any length of time you know that my life revolves around my 4 grandkids. :-)
