Hi Tombow friends, it’s Dani from @popfizzpaper with Halloween paperclips in 5 quick and easy steps! Below you’ll find a tutorial video, step-by-step instructions, and pictures showing different ways you can use them! Enjoy!
- Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tabs
- 2″ paperclips
- Crepe paper
- Glitter or decorative paper
- Plain and/or scalloped circle punch (1″ or 1.5″)
- 3D stickers
First, create a rosette out of your crepe paper and cut off the excess.
Next, flip the rosette to over to the back side, place the top of the paperclip over the center of the rosette, then staple into place a few times at the top of the clip. The staples should both adhere the paperclip and keep the rosette closed.
Place a Tombow Xtreme Tab over the stapled area of the paperclip, remove the backing, then adhere a circle punched out of cardstock.
Next, flip the rosette paperclip over to the front side, place down another Tombow Xtreme Tab, remove the backing, and cover with a circle punched out of glitter paper.
Finally, remove any sticky bits from the back of your 3D sticker and replace with a Tombow Xtreme Tab, then affix to the front of your rosette on top of the glitter paper. Done! You could totally use these in your planner or travelers notebook, or even your dotted journal. I will probably use my Halloween paperclips in happy mail, papercrafts, and to close up treat bags!
