Super Easy Earthday Altered Paperclip with ScraPerfect


To begin, fold the book page in half and then tear or cut on that fold line. Fold one of these pieces in half, then unfold and apply ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever on one side of the fold, press closed. Fold the page in half again.


Open the fold and place a paperclip on the folded edge in the center of the back. It will look like a booklet. The front is where the decorations will go. Apply BGE around the paperclip and paper. Press closed.

Place the altered paperclip base into spray box, apply lace stencil and spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

On the back side of the mat apply a thin line of BEG but leave the top open so that this can become a pocket. Attach to the Altered Paperclip Base.

Next, we will make a tag to go into the pocket. Using a strip of scrap watercolor paper round the top corners with a 1/4 Crop-A-Dial corner chomper. Then apply Distress Ink around the edges. Add a swirl of BEG on the top edge and lay a piece of flat lace over the glue. This Super Easy Earthday Altered Paperclip with ScraPerfect is almost done.

Layer the Oval Scalloped shape and the domino image on top of the lace.

Cut a piece of eyelash yarn about 1/2 long and add a drop of glue on the Altered Paperclip Base lower right corner. Touch the punched heart to the glue and then sandwich the eyelash yarn between the heart and the base. Do the same with a butterfly on the tags left side.

Attach the ScraPerfect Medium No Clog Cap to the Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint bottle.

The fine point on the Medium No Clog Cap is great for adding touches of glitter paint.

The Best Cleaner Ever is a perfect way to prevent your no Clog Tip from clogging. Just dip the end into a drop of the BCE and replace the cap. It will be ready to use the next time you open the bottle.

Great little project for using up bits & pieces and scraps.  These clips are perfect to add to scrapbook layouts, cards, journals and planners.

I've had the journaling tickets and cool metal tassels FOREVER in my stash - this was the perfect project to dig them out!

Best Glue Ever never fails me in crafting for all kinds of surfaces and mediums.

How to Paper Clip Challenge Party Celebrating Earth Day!!!

Hi Everyone Ginny here, it is day two of our  Paper Clip Challenge Party Celebrating Earth Day.  To enter and Win prizes and receive a discount coupon It is easy and fun full instructions are at the end of my post.
Making these paper clips is a little addictive!  I'll share  4 that I made in about 10 minutes.  What a great little favor for a Sunday school class, women's group - shower or gift to give with a book!   I used a long-buried piece of scrapbook paper and a few bits from my stash.

Here is the process, lot of pictures:

I pulled a piece of paper from stash - or you can use your scraps - great for Earth Day!



Cut two-inch strips, then cut in half


  Grabbed my Best Glue Ever.   This adhesive works on everything, including the gems and lace I used for this project. I also used my Embellie Gellie that I use all the time to pick up everything in my craft room.  One little container fo this will last years!


Fold the strip in half, put the paper clip on the back


fold up and press together


A tiny bit of glue using the No Clog Cap. Holds down any embellishment  you can think of.

  


Using the  Embellie Gellie  I can easily pick up and place every embellishment you can think of!







My finished altered paper clips


Using leftover sentiments was fun too!
