I see these sculpey paper clips all over the internet--Etsy, YouTube, and various planner groups on Facebook. I thought to myself, why not make my own? So, I did and it was super easy. I also wanted to make my own because most are a little too kawaii for my taste. I did add a face to my broccoli but for the most part, I just wanted to make semi-realistic objects like cookies and...poop. If I have brown sculpey I am going to make poop; it's a fact of life.
All of these paper clips look awesome sticking out of a Filofax or notebook. I don't think they'd last long in a planner I carry in my bag but for my journal that I keep strictly at home, they will probably last a long time. At the same time, if one breaks it isn't the end of the world--they took less than 10 minutes to make.
The cookie charm is actually going to be used on my Midori Traveler's Notebook that I've yet to receive in the mail! So excited.
I have a bunch more ideas that I want to try as soon as I get more sculpey. The light brown color I used went fast. Would you like one? Let me know and we'll work something out!
