Altered Paper Clip- Earth Day Celebration

Hey there!
We are celebrating Earth Day here at ScraPerfect by making altered paper clips. This is Lisa and this is the first altered paper clip I have done. This was so much fun!
Here's what I did:
I tore a page from an old book and tore it in half:

I folded it in half:

Using The Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap attached, I added a small thin line of glue:

Then I folded it over:

I added a paper clip and added thin lines of glue:

I was ready to get messy! I added a thin layer of Gesso:

When that was dry, I took a stencil and applied glass beads through it:

Here is what it looked like:

I added some of The Best Glue Ever to the "Dream" wood veneer piece and spread it using my finger:

Once the glue was dry (clear) I placed a piece of the transfer foil on top and rubbed with my finger:

This was the outcome, shiny and gorgeous!

I added a few different colors of orange mists, letting it dry in between layers:

I added some brown mist spatters:

I foiled the star as well and attached it and the "Dream" wood veneer using the Best Glue Ever. Finally, I added sequins using the Embellie Gellie: 

Here is my finished clip: 

I love how this turned out!

This turned out really amazing! I am new to altered paper clips so I may be a little confused. Is the paper clip sticking out the back to be used on something?

Linda, you could add it to a card, use it as a book marker, or pretty much anything you can think of. I am thinking of doing a few and hanging it on a string or ribbon to make a banner.

This is so cool! I love it! I'm really enjoying these clips and need to get going on making some. Really loving that Best Glue Ever - it's at the top of my wish list right now!
