I am currently working on a couple of Pocket Letters, What is a Pocket Letter?, You can read more about them HERE. I will be doing a blog post on the pocket letters I created soon. Being a crafter and maker I wanted to make a couple of handmade trinkets for planners and journals for to fit in my pockets. In my stamp stash, I came across a vintage BUNNY stamp I have had for YEARS and thought it would make the cutest paperclip top. The clips I made I early in the week, I used cardstock, but for this batch I decided to make them a little thicker and opted for watercolor paper. I used StazOn ink pad to stamp the image and then colored in with watercolors
And even used markers for some
I Fussy Cut each stamp shape and laminated them using a heat laminator
Once laminated I cut around the stamp design again
Now, grab a cup of coffee or tea because we are going to put them all together. Supplies needed are large paperclips, felt for the backing and hot glue to hold it all together
Three steps left, add hot glue to the back of the laminated stamp, press the paperclip into the hot glue and make sure you keep it straight and then add and secure the felt backing
And there you have it, cutest clips ever. When traveling with your planner, journal or book be careful with these clips by not placing something on top the laminated stamp could bend.
Endless possibilities with creating your own clips and will fit perfectly in a pocket letter~ Rebecca
