Bling Bookmarks

I’ve been using plain old paper clips to mark my pages in my blog project idea book, and decided that they were way too boring for me.  I like sparkly things to get me motivated, so I did some experimenting.  This is what I came up with!

Bling Bookmarks Before & After

What you’ll need:

Bling Bookmarks Supplies

Some Paper Clips, matching pairs of Buttons, or large rhinestones.  Plus you’ll need some E-6000 & some clothes pins.

Dip the closed end of the paper clip into some of the E-6000.

Using the glue on the paper clip, glue it to the bottom third of the rhinestone or button.

Add some E-6000 to the back of a matching piece & sandwich together.

Clamp them together with spring clothes pins.  Set aside to dry.  I left them for about an hour, just because I had to make dinner.

Once they are dry, they can be used like any other paper clip.

To store them, I just put them on some card stock.

Now I can mark my pages with a little sparkle!

I love the way they turned out.  Hope you like them too!
