Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Today is the ninth installment of my Twelve Days of Christmas series. I must admit that I have a new found respect for those bloggers and YouTubers who put out consistent daily content. It's a lot of work and time coming up with the projects, doing the videos and editing them, taking pictures and editing those, writing up the blogs posts, and so on. I suppose it's all in what you get used to doing and how far ahead you plan stuff out. Not sure I'll do another long series like this. I'm such a lightweight! lol
Our project today is something a little different than what I've been doing. Today I'm showing you some altered paper clips!
These little goodies make wonderful embellishments for scrapbook and journal pages, flags/tabs for marking pages in your planner or other books, take away embellishments on a card, and fun little gifts! They're also the perfect way to use up your scraps. I used hot glue on most of these, but you could also use e6000 if you were using metal pendant trays, cabochons or bottle caps, all of which would be adorable! I will definitely be making more of these little bundles of cuteness.
|Pinwheels/rosettes.....beautiful but deadly. Watch my video and you'll see why I say that! ;)|
Flat back resin rose is hot glued to the card stock scallop.
|Perfectly simple for a journaling spot in a scrapbook or junk journal! |
I rounded the corners and inked the edges just to jazz it up a tiny bit.
|It's pink. 'Nuff said!!|
|Another great little pennant to use as a decoration or a page marker in a book.|
|Another happy Mr. Snowman. I did add a dab of hot glue on the back of the ribbons so they would stay put.|
|My personal little planner marker. This little baby tells me at a glance where my current week page is in my planner. I haven't used any glue at all on this and it stays put very nicely.|
If you search google, check Pinterest, or check out YouTube for "altered paperclips" you will find a ton of inspiration. I will point you to a couple of YT channels that I got inspiration from: craftyirina and TheScrappyBookworm1. Both of these ladies have some really lovely creations.
Here is my video walk through of these altered paper clips. Enjoy!!
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Crafting!
