A simple yet satisfying project

I’ve been seeing these all around the internet and finally made a bunch of the last month. It was surprisingly satisfying and I plan to make more. What was this satisfying project? Beribboned paperclips!

Ribbons, paperclips and a dab of glue

Easy to make and so much fun

 

My friend Sandy was there and she took a bunch of them too. It’s a great way to use up those 2-inch bits of ribbon. Even better, it is easy to find one when you need one.

We used wider ribbons on the wide clips. In addition to day to day use, I plan to include some themed ones in my holiday notebooks. I found a box of black paper clips at Staples and will add Halloween ribbons to them. These will be fun to include in gift bags at a Halloween Tea Party.
