Good Morning and Here’s a Little Tutorial for you! Some Little Pretties

Morning!  Hope you are all enjoying the start of your day and I sure hope that the rest of the day is wonderful. 
Well I have a little tutorial for you…something so quick! easy! and fun!
You can use all kinds of little pretty bits you have and that is always a good thing.
I have been blogging now for almost 3 months…I know a true baby blog but I have to say that I love it and I have met so many FABULOUS people.  My heart went a flutter when I saw that I had hit my 200th follower (friend) so I wanted to celebrate a little. So at the end of this post you are going to see a collage of all of the little pretties I made for this post and one of my readers is going to get all of them plus some little extras which will be a surprise as a celebration prize!    Just leave me a little comment telling me something that you might use them for and that will be your entry. All you have to be is a member of my blog and new members are always WELCOME!  On Monday morning I will do the little random pic and fill you in on who the winner is : )
Thank you so much everyone for being YOU!!!!
So Simple…So Sweet…

Now let’s create…
 Gather your supplies..You will need some mini clothespins…a variety of card stock… 2 different size punches… 1 inch round wooded circles or something for “lift” between the card stock and then all kinds of fun embellishments and you know you have them : ) then of course use your imagination and create tons of little pretties! 
1.  I used a 2 inch scallop punch and a 1 1/2 inch scallop punch…punch away…choose some pretty card stock that compliments each other and punch 2 of the large size and 1 of the smaller size.  
2. Take one of the larger punched pieces of card stock and glue your clothespin down…I used hot glue but you can use your favorite glue.  I enjoy the instant adhere from the hot glue.
3.  Now repeat and glue the other large circle to the top of the clothespin…
4.  Now glue the little round wooded circle in the center of the large scallop (once again…you can use anything that you would like such as a button for lift…
5.  Glue the smaller cardstock circle to the top of your lift…
6.  Now Embellish away…you imagination shall guide you!
7.  Use them in all kinds of fun ways…Embellish a gift bag and add a note…top off a pretty brown bags with a special touch…add a magnet to the back and pop it up on the fridge and leave notes or lists in style…attach to a pretty present…leave someone a sweet note on the table or on their desk…I think you can think of a million other uses…I love them because if you adorn a gift with them…that person can use it over and over again!  Hope you enjoy this little project and let your imagination SOAR!!!
There’s still time to create some Halloween pretties to clip those goodie bags closed!
Here’s a few uses…
Now here are all of the little pretties that you will get if you are the lucky number drawn and I promise there will be more surprise goodies in there for you…remember…leave me a comment on what you would like to use them for…the only must is that you be a follower of the blog…new followers are ALWAYS WELCOME!
I will pick a random winner on Monday Morning

(HUGS) till later!  ENJOY
