What kind of paper clips are you talking about, the regular ones, bulldog, or butterfly? If it's the later how about
making office angels?

There was an office angel on here awhile ago with a poem to attach.

I have a poem that I use and I make the angels but I don't
know if the butterfly clips are the ones that Mollyjanea is
asking about. It would help to know then I could post what I
have here. Otherwise I don't have any craft ideas using
regular paper clips.

I am making a window covering for the small window on the door in my bedroom that opens on to our front verandah. I'm using different clips, clothespins, large colored paperclips, small toothed hair clips, etc., to clip pretty handkerchiefs to a thin flexible curtain rod.

This would make a great 1st Class Postage Swap item. Thanks for asking the questions and thanks everyone for working so hard looking things up and it wasn't even my question.\

I have a paper to wear to honor holocaust victims.An idea that started in a little school about 2 hours north of me in the middle of no where. It's a great story and if you have the change to see the little documentry about these wonderful kids and their teachers it fabulous it's called "Paper Clips" and it airs on HBO quite often.
