This is a super-easy mini-project that we’ll be making at Marcie’s workshop on the 30th. It’s a large binder clip, altered into a photo holder!
The black portion of the binder clip was covered in Candy Lane DSP (available as part of the Love You Much bundle that is still available – or by itself starting 1/19/09 in the new catalog). The flower was punched with the 5 Petal punch, using the reverse side of the striped paper (it’s hard to see, but it’s lovely little polka dots on Pretty In Pink). The flower was also punched in Riding Hood Red. The center is made from Pretty In Pink, punched with the 1/2 inch Circle punch, then given some sparkle thanks to Dazzling Diamonds glitter. A silver brad completes the flower. It was attached using a glue dot (full-size). A little Pretty In Pink taffeta ribbon decorates the top of the clip – and voila! It’s ready for a photo! For some reason, I had the worst time getting this to show up well on the camera! I am not sure if it’s because of the reflection from the metal (and glitter) or what. Hopefully, you get the idea! 😉
In case you are wondering who the gorgeous girl in the photo is, it’s my daughter, right after she got her hair done for prom last year. Her outfit even matches the clip! 🙂
