This "throwback" is from the MeGa site, January 14, 2011. We had so many request on how to do the embellished paper clips from this popular tutorial that we finally created a Freebie Friday showing how to do the actual paper clips. Of course, you can add many more layers and use stamps or die cuts, silk flowers...the possibilities are endless. And don't forget, they don't have to be flowers!!
Freebie Friday - Embellished Paper Clips
This tutorial has been one of our most popular and could it be because of these cute little embellished paperclips? We've had several ask about them so today we are sharing with you how quick and easy it is to put these together.
Gather your supplies. Decide on your paper (card stock or patterned paper), the punch or die cut you want to use and glue dots. (You can use many other things but for this example, we are using punched flowers.)
For our example, we used a card stock flower on the back and a patterned paper flower on the front. Place the card stock flower on the back of the paper clip with a glue dot. (You may need to use more than one.)
Then use another glue dot to place the "front" flower on top of the paper clip lined up with the back flower. You can, of course, layer these flowers or add other embellishments.
