Decorative Paperclips Using Brads

Here’s a set of spiffy paperclips I made as part of a Christmas gift this past December. To make them, the only supplies needed are:

  • Paperclips
  • Brads
  • Needle-Nosed Pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Glue Gun (optional)

First, bend the fasteners on the back of the brad around the top two sides of the paperclip, cutting off the ends that extend beyond the brad’s face. Tighten the fasteners down using the pliers. If the brad is attached loosely, you can always add a little hot glue to keep it from shifting. Let dry and you have a little bling to dress up your paper files.
