What else have I been making charms for?

I have just finished up these altered Rolodex cards for a swap, my first time altering them! Since I have made so many charms lately and have extra beads everywhere, I wanted to be able to add some to my layouts and projects. I decided to make some small charms and add them to my paper clips!

Such an easy way to add some unexpected bling when a stick pin may not work!

I used some old book pages, Distress Ink, swirl background stamp, and some very yummy paper from the Basic Grey Hopscotch line. I also cut some crete paper streamers in half with decorative scissors to make the ribbon. To finish off the paper clip, I tied some Martha Stewart ribbon, and added a Prima flower. I left the tab blank so each person could add their own label.

I am super excited about using these charmed out paper clips in some layouts of mine!
Happy crafting!!

You are just so darn crafty!! Clever idea putting the beads and charms on the paper clip!

BTW, do you have a stamp-a-ma-jig or a thing-a-ma-jig? On my last SOS post there were several comments on using one. I think a tutorial on using it would be nice for SOS readers.
