Binder Clips

Last month I went to the SCS 'Michigan Mingle' where lots of wonderful Michigan splitcoasters met for a weekend of fun and frolics. Gosh, we had fun and I met some wonderful people! My shoebox swap was this binder clip which I thought I'd share with you today. I bought a 6-pack of large binder clips from Staples. They worked really well because the little handles are rubber-coated which means the grip a photo, or whatever you want to display, really well. Firstly I measured across the clip and around the clip and cut my DSP accordingly. Here it's Ginger Blossom by SU. I stuck 3 pieces of sticky strip onto the clip, one across the top front, one across the top back and one strip across the centre of the bottom. Then it's just a question of lining up the paper and sticking it down. The embellishments are just so easy ... really anything goes! I used 2 primas, a brad and some retired Cranberry Crisp stitched ribbon. So quick, so easy and really ... so cute!
