Fun with paperclips + new stamps!

So, I saw some spendy decorative paperclips the other day — they  were manufactured — and my mind started whirring with ideas on how I could make some myself. (And save a little $ — to spend on crafty stuff, ha!) As soon as I saw the new Mix + Match Elements set from Hero my mind went — ah ha!

I went a little crazy making them — so fast + easy…

They’re on the Here Arts website here if you’d like to learn how to make ’em.  AND, best of all — at least to me — they use recycled chipboard!  This was from the back of a notepad.  I’m planning to put them on mini cards — clipped to the top, and I think I will keep some for myself to brighten up the office.

Let me know if you make any, would love to see!
