What I love about crafting is that I can take everyday items and make them fun and pretty! This is a great project for beginners! These paperclips work really well in a planner to brighten your day, and also work wonderfully as bookmarks! There are eight designs — a turtle, elephant, dolphin, owl, snail, cat, bird, and a rabbit. SO fun and cheerful!

Her blog is a gorgeous space filled with lace and paper DIYs, so do check it out! I am so excited to be sharing a craft tutorial on how to make these gorgeous earrings from the humble paper clip. Right back to the tutorial, I must say now these are a little tricky and can take a bit of time, but they are so worth the extra effort. Make sure when you leave it to dry, the glued side is away from anything. I have a triangle stuck to my coffee table, whoops! Start with the side where the join is and roll the tape around it to create a smooth surface to attach your thread to. Cut six strands of thread, all a metre long, and attach the ends to the double sided sticky tape.
Paper Clips Project
For hundreds of years, until the late 19th century, people didn't have a good way to fasten papers together except to bind them, like a book, which wasn't very practical for just a few papers that might need to come apart again. They tried using straight pins, or slicing into the corner of the paper and wax sealing a piece of string in the slit to tie it all together -- both of which damaged the paper, and sometimes even fingers. By the midth century inventors were coming up with metal clamps and spring-loaded clips to do the job, but they didn't work all that well.
A paper swimsuit is a swimsuit which has been specifically designed for competition, and while not actually made from paper, such suits are often paper thin. Racing suits have a number of design features which distinguish them from ordinary swimsuits, and for competition swimmers, it is crucial to make sure that such suits are fitted properly to ensure that the swimmer will perform at her or his best during competition. Needless to say, such suits are often lacking in the modesty department, because the focus is on performance, not looks. A typical paper swimsuit is extremely thin, and typically single-layered, and it is very stretchy. Paper swimsuits are designed to be very tight, and they are worn snug on the body.
