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.

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.
