Pretty Handy


While browsing my local craft store I noticed some plain metal clips in the jewelry department.  I didn't have a plan for them when I put them in my basket but they were inexpensive and I thougth I could add a little something to them.  I've been so busy with football and cheer lately that I haven't had much studio time so when a 1/2 hour opened up a couple of nights ago I took it!  I didn't realize how much small ephemera that I have and I put some of it to use.  I really like how strong the clamps are on these clips.  I suppose I'll use them to keep paper items together, attach a note or thank you to a gift, etc.  If you think of any other great uses let me know!

So Cute. I especially like the "Dainty" one. Maybe you can make Christmas inspired ones and clip them to your little tinsel tree.

Oh my, I think I would use them to hold things back when I take photos. I am always looking for strong clips that are cute for holding art journals, paint paper, and wild backdrops, too.

Fun blog!
