American Crafts | Paperclips

It's Paper Clips week on the American Crafts blog!  Paperclips can be used as unique embellishments on your projects.  I used the 
Dear Lizzy paperclips to number the photos of my niece playing peek-a-boo
on my layout.

How To:  Handcut about 50 elongated half circles from pattern paper, set aside.  Print five small photos and handcut into half circles (tip: use an already cut half circle as a template for your photos).  Line up the pattern paper half circles and photos onto white cardstock paper in seven horizontal rows, making sure to place a photo onto five of the rows, leaving the top row and bottom row blank.  Handcut the "hello circle" from the Fine & Dandy gold foil paper, cut into a half circle. Remove two patterned paper half circles from the third row and place cut "hello circle" in it's place.  Slip a paperclip over a half circle on each row that has a photo, before adhering down.  Adhere word stickers to a couple of half circle pieces.  Use a sewing machine to stitch all rows in place.  Flick black spray mist over page, being careful not to get mist on photos.  Stamp a date onto a metal rimmed tag and adhere "Admit One" sticker on top, adhere to bottom left hand side of layout.  Adhere clear acrylic shapes and die cut ephemera bow.  Finish by adhering plastic glitter bow.
