Clothespins, Pretty Boring, Huh?

Clothespins? I know, I know… Useful, but sadly boring. In other words NOT INTERESTING!
This is what many people would say…  A clip, a wooden fastener, the most common accessory to help dry our clothes. Maybe it’s time to realize that it can be more than that. It can be part of an artwork, product design aaaand even part of a fashionable article of clothing. :) I personally was impressed by Sandra Backlund’s dress.

I was preparing another post for weird business cards, but I thought this nice craft would be more appropriate here. Business cards have gotten very creative, from what I can see. I am not sure how this one would fit in your wallet though, but it is a great way to recycle clothespins.

Clothespins seem to be innovative ideas for business cards - you must admit it’s a little strange to write your contact details on such a support, chopsticks, furniture, clothing, almost any kind of art and design forms. I put a few art examples below. The clothespin statue is not among my favorites, but the 3d sculpture made by Ariel Rose as well as the framed clothespins are pretty cool.  ;)
