For this swap, you will create a set of 4 embellished paper clips for two partners. I recently ordered something from an etsy seller and she included one of her embellished paper clips with my order and it is CUTE! So...I browsed around google and found several tutorials/photos/sets of instructions on how to make my own.
So...get out your punches, rubber stamps, ribbons, charms, and anything else that strikes your fancy and create two sets of 4 embellished paper clips to send to your two partners!
Try to use the large paper clips--not the standard size--because I think they will be easier to embellish. These should be easy to obtain at any office supply store. Then, following one of the tutorials (or just working from a photo), embellish the clips so they are beautiful and functional. Make certain that the back of your embellishment is covered--like a sandwich around the paper clip. If you choose to do the ribbon/charm embellishments this is not necessary.
Here are a couple tutorial links I found:
and the photo came from the pink elephant blog.
Everyone rated 4.9 or above is welcome in the swap. If your rating is lower than that, please message me to join the swap. You must have been rated for 10 type 3 swaps in order to join. As the swap host, I will angel if necessary.
Since paper clips are so lightweight (and because it's always sad when international swappers want to join and can't :+) I'm listing the swap as international.
