For my first project, I worked with plain wooden clothespins and Distress Inks. I pulled the clothespins apart and inked them with Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Barn Door and Spiced Marmalade.
Then I inked up the rubber stamp with black ink.
You can add magnets to the back and use them as little note holders on your fridge or file cabinet but I like these as little note stands. You could also display a little photo in one.
