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