I am completely obsessed with plaid right now. It's everywhere and it's so stinking cute. I have been working on a pocket letter to send to a friend and I have been thinking about the things that I want to include. Paper clips were on my list, but I want them to be fun and cute. I saw the flannel at Joanns and new I had to make these. They are so simple and would make perfect gifts as a cute bookmark or for your planner friends.
What you need
Plaid Fabric (cotton or flannel)
Hot glue gun
I cut the fabric into strips 2- 1''x 6'' ( If you don't have wide paper clips like mine then I would only cut them 1/2''x5'')
Sew around the raw edges. You don't have to do this step if you don't want to. Then pull the strings around the edges to give it a frayed look. It makes them look so much better.
Fold the strip in half and pull the loop end through the paper clip and then pull the ends through the loop.
If you need to dab some hot glue on the back side to keep it tight then do so now. I only had to do that on one of mine. I think it depends on the weight of the fabric.
They are so fun and cute. I also think they would be super cute clipped to gift tags on Christmas presents just add a little something extra.
I am off to make 100 more.
