Paper Clip Design #1

OK I have been obsessed with all these cute paper clips, book marks, and clothes pins on Pinterest.  Of course I have ALOT of paper clips in my craft room and since I would like to start having a small booth at craft fairs with my parents I thought it would be a good time to see how long these would take.

Here is One design I decided to make.

 Here I am taking some pattern paper which is from a 6X6 pad called Hello Friend by Stamps of Life and I am putting a little bit of double sided tape on one edge.

 I slide the paper clip threw with the long side showing and I remove the backing from the double sided adhesive.
 I close the two ends together.

I chose two inches long because that looked good, its all up to you and the size of your paper clip.
 Here I am taking my tiny stapler from Stampin UP and stapling at the top as close to the paper clip as I can get.
 How they look.

I got most of my paper clips from the $1 store and some from Target.
 I am using a Paper Studio punch to punch out the flowers, its by Hobby Lobby.

I am using the same paper pad, I am also using a mouse pad and a quick stick cap to make the flowers curl up.

Just press down in the center.
 Again same paper pad I punched out the leaf from the Bird Builder punch by Stampin UP.

I am also using MFT Hybrid ink to stamp my sentiment on scrap white card stock.

The sentiment stamp came from a Stamps of Life Card Kit club set.
I used a little bit of hot glue to attach everything to the flag part of the paper clip. The pearl is from Micheal's, their Recollection brand.
