Even your office desk deserves a little bling :-)

by a cute paperclip… yes a paper clip, I thought I’d give my office supplies a refresh.
Using E-6000®, pliers, a bead reamer, thumb tacks, paper clips and some super cute
charms my office supplies took on a new life! They’re certainly a little different
but I love how fun they are. I’m hoping the next time I turn in paperwork that my
cute little clips will bring a smile to whoever is on the receiving end!
the thumb tacks I simply took the loops off of the charms (using pliers) and filed
any rough edges (using the side of my bead reamer). Then I applied a little glue
to the head of the tack and glued it to the back side of a charm. Some of the charms
I used didn’t even have loops, so I just simply glued those on with no extra work.
I let them dry for a few hours and then put them to use!
the paper clips I followed the same steps of removing the loops and filing the rough
edges. I pooled a little glue on a piece of paper and dipped the end of a paper
clip into the glue. Then I glued it to the back side of a charm and kept the charm
face down to dry.
course it’s fun to share this little bit of office whimsy, so using some colored
paper I made little gift-able tags for my co-workers.
I’ve decide that I want to delve a little more into creating some fun & crafty
office supplies, so this is the first of a few blogs I’d like to do on this topic.
The next will involve beads so check back soon! Maybe you’ll be inspired by my paperclip
