::TUTORIAL:: Brilliant Paper Clips

Hi friends! Isn't it amazing what you can create with the simplest, "plain Jane" office supplies?! I took a bunch of my giant paper clips and turned them into a collection of unique clips with brilliant colors and soft, dainty textures. Last but not least, a colorful ribbon bow was added to finish the look.

See the step-by-step tutorial right here on the RubberMoon Arts blog

I love using my stash of monoprinted papers for these smaller projects!

I encourage you to take another look at your office supplies and turn them into something that puts a smile on your face, every time you use them. Happy creating!
