Trendspotting: Paper Clips

27 Aug

What do you think of when I say “paper clip”?  I’m guessing you’re picturing a good old-fashioned paper clip – the twisted wire type that we’ve been using in offices for decades.  As scrapbookers and paper crafters, we are always looking for fun ways to use common objects on our projects – paper clips are not only fun, but functional.  But, lucky us, we aren’t confined to using ONLY old-fashioned paper clips (though they can be fun on our projects too).  There are many manufacturers who have taken the paper clip to the next level – check out these unique clips that are available right now!

So the next time you want to clip something onto your project, or if you’re just looking for a fun embellishment for that finishing touch, don’t forget to check out the paper clip options!  Do you have a favorite paper clip product we’ve missed?  We’d love to see it – just link us up to it in the comment section!
