Chalkboard clips

I have been on a bit of a chalkboard paint kick for a while now.  I even have a whole chalkboard pin board.  I wanted to try to bust some stash while I was at it, so I came up with clothes pin chalkboard tags.

I started by painting some clothes pins I had lying around from this photo board project:

I then cut pieces of ~2"x3" balsa wood that I had leftover from my zen garden project and sprayed them with chalkboard paint. 

I was debating whether I wanted to make them into picks like this, which was my original idea,

But then I also saw that someone had put them on clothes pins.  I liked the clothes pin idea better because I thought I might be able to find more uses for them.

One of my favorite ideas was to use them as lunch clips

This would be perfect if you have a few people in the family brown-baggin' it!

Currently I'm using them to label my craft storage shelves

This was a great stashbusting project that cost me NOTHING and it turned out really cute!
