I was one of the many houses in Brisbane that lost all internet connection this week, which was actually a good thing as I got a lot done around the house, but there were moments when I sat at my desk unable to do much on the computer. I opened my stationery drawer, and started fiddling with paperclips. I remembered seeing some great paperclip ideas on pinterest, so now my internet’s back, I thought I’d share them with you. Here are some fun ways to create your own DIY paperclips in various shapes.
DIY Heart paper clips tutorial – You Tube
How cute are these little coat hanger made from paper clips – see the tutorial here.
For some Christmas fun in the office you could try making these Angel paperclip – see tutorial here. You will need butterfly paperclips for this project which are available at Officeworks.
These paperclip flags using washi tape are so cute and easy to make – see tutorial at Paper & Pin.
Of course if you don’t want to DIY, you can always buy these ready made Kate Spade bow paperclips from The Gilded Pear.
Using decorative paperclips might be decorating on a micro level, but I think it’s the little touches that make a difference, and if it makes you smile then it’s worth it.
