I've done this for several Baby Shower's I've thrown and it's a huge hit.

Crafty Clothes Pins Party Favor

What you'll need:

- Wooden Clothes Pins (One Per Person)
- Craft paint in the colors of Baby Shower
- Small floss ribbon 1/8th inch in coordinating colors
- Small paint brushes
- Small magnets
- Super Glue or Hot Glue Gun

Paint each clothes pin in a base color that matches the Baby Shower once dry then paint polka dots, swirls, zig-zags, whatever you wish in a different color. Once dry take the coordinating ribbon and tie bows around each clothes pin right above the spring you can also use small plastic pacifiers or saftey pins on them or print out a small note that says "Baby" and polk a whole through the end of the paper or use hole in plastic pacifiers or saftey pins to thread the ribbon through it then tie a bow. Once you've tied the bows flip the clothes pin over and hot glue or super glue one magnet to the back of the pin.

At the shower play the game, "Dont Say The Word Baby" using clothes pins each person gets one to start, if they say "Baby" and someone hears, the person that heard gets there clothes pin the person with the most clothes pins at the end of shower wins.

- After the game is over and the winner is announced have everyone give there clothes pins back to the person they got them from.

- The clothes pins work for hanging on the refrigerator to hold bills, reminder notes, etc. or guests can use them for chip bag clips etc. it will be a reminder of a home made gift they got from the shower..

Best Wishes

The ribbons really do make a world of difference, I thought mine looked like crap, but once I made the bows, they turned out so cute. I did some really neat things with mine and no two are alike. This was a great and CHEAP idea.
