Nerd Girl Fleur – Embellished Paper Clips Tutorial
With planners all the rage (I have one being shipped as we speak) I have seen some cute embellished paper clips and other embellishments for them and thought I could make my own.
I made several different kinds but this tutorial (includes a video) shows how I make the clips using die cuts. First gather up your supplies. You will need paper, die cuts, clips, glue dots and foam tape.
If you are using two die cuts with the same shape it’s super easy. First place a glue dot on one of the die cuts and lay the paper clip on the glue dot.
Add foam tape under and on top of the clip, this lets the 2nd die cut stick better. Add a glue dot to the 2nd die cut and place on top of the first one.
Voila – so easy right. The heart one was made with my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Heart 25, the third one was made with some chipboard from the Maggie Holmes collection, the fourth one is ribbon, the 5th one is also chipboard and the last one is American Crafts glitter tape.
