I am seeing a lot of collections that have decorated clothes pins in them. What do you do with them? I am thinking they are not for pages, wouldn't that be too bulky?
2013 layout count: 58
|Posted: 1/12/2013 8:36:13 PM|I have some super tiny ones from long, long ago in different colors. But they are REALLY tiny.
I also, more recently bought the pebbles ones and they aren't TOO bulky, so I think that they would fit in a page protector? Not sure yet.
Now, those Big ole' honkin' ones, like from K & co... eh, I don't like them and I think those are way too big for a LO.
"regular" size takes away the "aww, cute little clothespin" to me

They're cute, but I wouldn't use them on layouts. Cards would be great though!

I do love the tiny ones. I thought someone here on 2peas did a cute layout with them and a Got Sketch or Pagemaps sketch.
Off to look. Will post a link if I find it...

They are cute but I have trouble making them work on my layouts.
|Posted: 1/12/2013 9:29:00 PM|With the tiny ones I definitely use them on my pages. I just turn them on their sides and use them with a glue dot. . No more bulk than a chipboard..

Sorry, can't find the one I was thinking of, but it had used A LOT of the mini clothespins.

I've used the Crate Paper ones on layouts and I'm happy with the way the pages fit in my album.

I agree with the OP, seems like they're too bulky for LOs. I've never used clothespins on pages and don't think I ever will..

I have a set of Pebbles that came in the Cocoa Daisy October add-on kit and I really like them on pages or cards. I would like some a wee bit smaller also.

I think they are too bulky. Cute but not usable to me.

I use them all the time. I have only ever used the ones from pebbles. I dont find them any bulkier than the prima flowers. Love to use them with banners, jazz up a journal card, and when i incorporate my kids art projects into a layout.

Too bulky paper ok

I haven't used or even bought them yet. They seem too bulky to me and I'm not a flat scrapper.

I used some many years ago and I was just looking at my album page and found some nice creases from the mini paper clip, among other things. Just be very careful with your embellies on your pages.

I have some from long ago. Not sure what. I'm keeping them for. Maybe I will dig them out. They are small though.

I would use them in a mini album, but not on a layout.

I use clothespins a lot, but more for home decor and cards. I love them, I love making my own. I also use them all the time for gift bags.

They're cute to look at, but not very practical for an album type layout. I saw a cute idea for them on Pinterest for Valentines.
Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

I really like the look of them but way too bulky for a page!
|Posted: 1/12/2013 11:39:45 PM|
I think they are cute but I have never bought them, I was afraid they would be too bulky for my layouts. I love the idea of using them on gift bags! I am going to try that, cards and mini books sound like a good idea too, think I should buy some little ones.

They are cute, but I don't really see me using them on layouts. Now maybe if I was a card maker...

I won't use them. I don't like pages that are really bulky.
|Posted: 1/13/2013 12:21:25 AM|
I've wondered that too... I'm not really taken by the look of them on pages, I like them on gifts bags and tags - things where their size doesn't matter so much...

I wouldn't use them on a layout, but I can totally see them on something like a card that doesn't go in a page protector. Then again, I didn't use them the last time they were popular either.

My thoughts exactly! I think they are cute, and I've admired them but they are way too bulky for a layout. Now, I did use a little one on my December Daily... I just clipped it on the outside of the page protector.

I probably will never use them on a layout but might for other craft projects and can definitely see me using them in a printer's tray.

I think they are to bulky for a layout. I use them on cards, tags, wrapping. More paper craft projects.

I recently saw a card with the teeny ones and it was darling!
|Posted: 1/13/2013 12:21:07 PM|
They are totally cute! As others have said, clothes pins definitely are more geared to card making. I've seen some really cute baby cards using them.

Too bulky for my taste but cute.
