Kissing clothespin magnet

I did a version of my wedding couple clothespin (originally on Brooklyn Bride) for Chalkboard Mag, but this time I turned into…drumroll please….a magnet. *GASP*. I know, contain yourself. 
Materials: oversize clothespin, acrylic paints, paintbrush, pencil, magnet strip, double sided tape or glue, scissors.
Step 1: Create the outfit outlines of the couple’s clothing with your pencil. (I based her outfit off of Lauren Moffat‘s fall 2012 line)
Step 2: Paint in the outfits with your acrylics.

Step 3: Cut a strip of magnet and use double sided tape or glue to attach it to the clothespin.

Voila! 
I mostly wanted to find a way to find a practical use for this clothespin rather than just have it sitting on my bookshelf so I thought the fridge would be a much better place for it. Plus, you get a little peek into the chalkboard cupboard that I painted in our kitchen.
