Binder Clips

Happy Wednesday!

There is a group of five of us gals that get together quarterly. We've all worked together, over the years, for about 16 years. We used to meet on a Friday night, but as kids grow up . . . their social lives start taking over the Friday nights (with football games, parties, etc). So . . . we have lately been meeting quarterly at a local theater on a Sunday afternoon. We saw "A Tuna Christmas" just this past Sunday . . . it's hilarious and the two fellas acting in it did an awesome job! We laugh so hard, when we get together . . . I so enjoy meeting up with these girlfriends.

I made each of the gals one of these little binder clips, to use as a recipe holder or a picture holder. Purchase the biggest binder clip (2" wide). You need to cut a piece of paper 2" x 3.25" and adhere it to the clip. If the paper is thin enough, it'll fit under each of the rounded edges . . . if it's thicker, you might not be able to slip it under the rounded edge. So be sure to "dry fit" it, before you start gluing.

I used Deer Friends hostess stamp set and the scallop punch, along with the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches.

Tie a ribbon around the bottom (around both of the clip part) and viola, you're done! Cute little gift . . . this would be a great little thing to make for a school bazaar or a craft show.

Only one week until Christmas! I've gotta get busy, finishing up the Christmas shopping and baking!

Enjoy your week!
