paper clip ideas?

mollyjaneaFebruary 12, 2006

any ideas for embellishing paper-clips for my friends who work in offices? i want to make usable sets for gifts, along theme lines, like dogs or flowers or purple or whatever. i want to use beads or buttons i think, but am seeking how-to's, etc. thanks so much, molly

Decorate a small piece of boxboard (like cornflakes boxes) or bristol board, maybe with a "$" sign, or "Dollars and Sense".

Title it, "Tightwad's Money Clip", then slip a penny over the titled board, holding it in place with the paper clip.
