I love things that come in mini sized and clothes pins are no exception. I love Japanese Washi Masking Tape in any size. Marry the two and I’m a happy camper.
I used two different tapes on each clothes pin, one on each side.
I did a version of this craft (if you can call it that) a while back with grown-up full size clothes pins. The beauty of using these little guys is you can apply the tape directly to the clothes pins without using white sticker paper as a base.
You can buy mini clothes pins at Olive Manna and Impress Rubber Stamps.

My husband printed some wedding invites a while ago and had some “overs”. They were printed on fabulous feeling, very thick paper and had a fun design on them. I love when something can be upcycled!
Here are the supplies I used.
scrap paper, hole punch, black/white bakers twine, paper punch
bakers twine and various paper punches
Here's what the press sheet looked like after I had my way with it with the paper punches.
Tags after I punched 1/8" holes in the them and threaded with bakers twine.
These tiny guys are my favorite.
Here are a few of the tags in action.
Tag attached to gift with japanese washi tape.
If you don’t have any one-sided scrap paper (say an image from a magazine) you could always run your scrap through a Xyron sticker maker, stick it on a solid piece of paper and then punch it with your paper punch.

Oh!, my little heart is beating fast! I just discovered a new source for my beloved Japanese washi tape. I do adore this stuff! All by itself it makes me swoon, but add in a great price, FREE shipping (on orders over $40) and 15% off your first order (when you sign up for their newsletter) and I’m in heaven.
