Cheap and Cheery- Clothespin Card Holders

I’m planning two baby showers right now, so I was thrilled when I came up with an idea that utilized something I already had in my house.  You could use this idea for place settings at a wedding or for the food and activity signage at any shower or party.  I simply cut 1.5 inch squares of Kraft chipboard with my paper-cutter and glued ONE end of the clothespins in the center of the squares.   You have to leave one end free so you can still open the pin to hold the card.  I printed the food labels, gift table sign and activity instructions on regular old card stock from an office supply store and then used my edge cutter to round them out.  The whole process took about 1 hour!
