Binder Clips...Enjoy!!

Morning everyone! How is the weekend going so far? The weather is gorgeous!! I didn't have time to stamp last night so I decided to make these CUTE Binder Clip holders this morning. I purchased LARGE black binder clips at OfficeMax a while back. (12 clips per box.)

I seen this idea at a local boutique, ThistleBerry, and just fell in love with them... also I looked on SplitCoast for a link but didn't find one. I know this idea has been around the SU! world!! :) The punched images are on both sides of the clip so you can enjoy from front and back!! (attached with a couple demensionals.)
















I took a close up shot of each one. Click on the photos for a closer look! I used my stash of scrap DP's, scraps of cardstock, used my punches, stamps, ribbon, etc. to create these cuties! You can use them for holding photos, recipes, notes, stamped cards, bake sale prices, place cards, etc. I put the Birthday Celebrations on one of them to show you what something attached would look like.

Have a fabulous weekend and stamp the day away!! It sure is hard this time of year to do that... LOL! Thanks for poppin' in for a visit and enjoy...

SMILES... Michelle :)

Hi Michelle, these are great.... just as well you put the Birthday note on one, because I was wondering what would happen when they were opened (to use in the traditional way)(silly silly me). I'm off to make a collection of these for everyone at work. What a great idea, and beautifully executed just like everything you do. Love them.

Lisa Hjulberg said...

How stinkin' cute are these????? Wowser, Michelle, I love them! I might have to make some of those for a door prize for Stamp Club. The girls would love them, too!

I'm so glad to hear that you're having good weather. You deserve it since you spend so much of the year shivering.

Stay tuned for an email from me tomorrow... today flew away with the garage sale and all.

Love ya girlfriend!
Lisa

Ooh Michelle, yumm-eeee!! LOVE them! I am so going to have to get Natasha making some of these in the summer holidays, what a fab idea!!! I did look for your ♥ but couldn't see it. Glad you managed to do it though, it's a fun little accent. It must be my eyesight going with all this beauty I'm seeing on your blog lately lol ;o)

BJ Smith said...

I forgot about these AND I just so happened to need a project to clean up some of my scraps!! TFS this idea. It was just what I needed today. I think I am going to use some of the ideas such as place settings, birthday note, hostess gift...Hmmm, the options are limitless. Better get moving. Gotta get some big clippies!!

LeAnne said...

Too cute! What a great way to use up some scraps. I just happen to have some binder clips hangin around here somewhere. Better find them so I can CASE this. TFS!

Karen Motz said...

Wow...these are SO much fun!!! They bring a smile to my face just looking at them. I think my fave is the star one because it's to bright and cheery. Wouldn't it be fabulous to have a little container of these on your desk at work? I wouldn't get any work done though cause I'd be staring at the cute clips all day! LOL! :)

Mary said...

Hi Michelle, I love your blog and the neat ideas you share! (I am Diane's friend and have met you at the monthly classes.) Anyway, was wondering what kind of adhesive you used on these clips to get the dsp papers to adhere to the clips? Hope to see you in August at the club night. Blessings, Mary
