What Can YOU Do with Paper Clips?

 



Paper clips the office/home necessity.

But in this post I have some other
ideas for these hard workers.

1. Clean your computer:
Turn off your machine, cover the end
of a clip with a small piece of tissue
dipped in rubbing alcohol, carefully
run the covered clip end over your
keyboard, removing dust and grime.

2. Put on a bracelet by yourself:
Unfold the clip into an "S" shape,
hook one end through the clasp.
Hold the other end in your bracelet
hand and fasten the clasp with your
free hand.

3. Decorate a cake:
Use the end to create fine details in
the icing or straighten it out to hold
decorations and toppers in place
once the cake comes out of the oven.

4. Secure floral displays:
Use a straightened clip (s)
in place of expensive floral wire.

5. Transform a bra:
Turn a regular bra into a racerback
by connecting the back straps with a
clip, which can slide up and down
depending on your shirt style.


Did you know:

An estimated 11 billion paper clips
are sold each year in the U.S.?

  2. I've used a'many of metal paper clips to hang Christmas decorations on the tree. When we'd take our Special Ed. class on the all day paddle boat fishin' trip there were always a couple students ya just didn't want with a sharp 'real' fish hook so this Country Chick would take a metal paper clip and bend it to look like a fishin' hook. I'd tie that bad baby on the line and everyone was safe and happy campers. Heeehehee.

    Have yourself a blessed and beautiful day sweetie!!!
