Decorative Paper Clips

Office life doesn’t have to be boring. With a few simple steps, you can spruce up any document.

To get started, get some large paper clips.

Make sure that you put your embellishments on the top of the paper clip away from the inside clip that comes down onto the paper. Otherwise, your embellishment will be in the way.

Place the folded area inside the paper clip and pull the end through it. decorative paper clips

  4. I love this idea, I’m thinking about if I can incorporate this into a Christmas gift somehow – maybe a bookmark type thing using this idea. Would make a great present to someone from the girls 🙂 xxx

  5. Pinning to my “Teacher’s” board. I love putting together cute gifts for our awesome teachers! I’d like to make the chipboard version for a filing system. Teachers file so much away 😉
