Although they're usually holding up my laundry, clothespins serve many purposes around the home. They're inexpensive, and taking a few seconds to make them extra special can also turn them into great little gifts. You might not have time to make them for your own house, but we're pretty sure you'd welcome a set with open arms if someone made them for you!

These great little clips came from Organize and Decorate Everything where they're doing just that. These average clothespins received a little stamp labeling treatment. And although no one really needs a clip that says 'bread,' they're oh-so-cute when put into use.

You can usually find small stamps in packs (instead of having to buy individual letters) and they're a great way to put to use those "40% off any not on sale item" coupons seen in craft store ads. Plus, once you own a set, let the labeling begin! Don't let your creativity stop there. See what else can receive the same treatment— linens? Napkins? Garden Stakes?

You can check out the full tutorial over at Organize and Decorate Everything.
