Scraps Bookmarks

I made these cute little book marks today using jumbo (3-1/2 inches long) paper clips.  I purchased the clips from Wal-mart in the office supply section.  This is a very easy project.  I used various punches.

I punched my shape once in light weight chipboard and twice in decorative cardstock.  I used glue stick to adhere one decorative cardstock to the chipboard.  Then I attached my embellishments (paper flowers and pastel princess brads) to the other piece of cardstock before adhering it to the chipboard.  I used rubber cement to attach the two sides together with the paperclip in between.  Rubber cement now comes acid free, which I love for this type of project because of its quick “tackiness” and fast drying.  Other glues didn’t hold well around the paper clip or I had to hold the piece for forever waiting for the glue to set. 

Once the rubber cement set I tied one or two pieces of ribbon around the clip for once last decorative touch.  🙂

All supplies (except paper clips) from The Angel Company.
