DIY Fabric Clothespin Gift Tags
The mod podge fabric clothespin is such a cute and quick project to bust through scraps with, and so useful. I was thinking about gift wrapping this year and it occurred to me it could be cute to clip the gift tag on each present with a cute fabric clothespin.
Then it occurred to me to glue a magnet to the back of it, so the giftee could use it on their fridge later on.
This is a great little project to use up some fabric (or paper) scraps as well.

Mod Podge Clothespin Gift Tags / Magnets
First you'll need some wooden clothespins, fabric scraps, and mod podge.
Trace your clothespin onto the back of your fabric, then cut the fabric out just inside the lines.
Apply a light coat of mod podge to the top of the clothespin:
Lay the fabric down and smooth out any bubbles:
Let it dry for 10-20, then apply another coat of mod podge on top:
Repeat on all your clothespins:
You'll see the fabric has some fraying. When it's all dry, sand down the edges to remove the fraying.
Then I cut some strips from sticky backed business card magnets and attached them to the back of the clothespins:
Clip tag to gift.
I made these gift tags with my handy tag shaped punch. Love that thing, use it to death.
