How to Make Pretty Paperclips

You Will Need:

Paperclips – I used plain silver ones from Kmart

Buttons – I used diamante buttons with a shank back

Step 1 Thread Button on Paperclip

Thread the shank of the button onto the paperclip.  Move the button along the paperclip until it is at the top of the paperclip.  Clip the paperclip onto some paper to make sure you have the button in the correct spot.

Step 2 – Glue Button

Using a hot glue gun, glue the button onto the paperclip making sure the glue comes into contact with both the paperclip and the shank of the button.  Position the button exactly how you want it while the glue is still hot, then leave to set.  If you don’t like the placement of the button, it’s easy to pick the glue off once it’s set and start again.
