    I wanted to share this craft with you, it's an easy last minute gift... can't imagine anyone wouldn't want one. We like to give these to teachers... as they are impersonal but handy.

    If you can't tell by the pics we have here a quilting ring, some wooden clothespins, green paint, cinnamon pine cones, fake floral, glitter & hot glue, and a little spray adhesive to add the glitter to the floral & pine cones.

    Paint the frame & the pins green, glue the clothespins onto the frame alternating between facing out & facing in... so some cards can be clipped to the inside too. Glue on the decorations with the hot glue gun... don't cover the part of the pin they have to press to open but you can cover the other end.
