Here is what you will need:
Large Paper Clips (You can find these in Office Supply stores in a range of colors)
I started by cutting out my shapes on the Expression and using punches for my circles.
Next, I used a Zig Squeeze & Roll pen to adhere my baker's twine. These "pens" seem to work well for adhering twine, because they make a fine line of glue and you can "write" or trace out your paths easily.
Once the glue dries, you can start layering all of your pieces. I like to add pop dots in between some of my layers, just to give them a little bit more dimension.
After you are done layering, flip your embellies over and glue your paper clip to the back. I like using hot glue...well just because hot glue is awesome and it sticks really well!! :) Make sure you attach the paper clip in the right direction, with the opening of the clip pointing down.
For my final step, I added a punched circle over the back of the clip, just to cover over where the paper clip is glued to the embellishment.
Here is how I used the finished product:
These would be great to make ahead of time from scraps and then when you are looking for the perfect embellishment, you can grab a few paper clip embellies and add them to your pages. You can also use these as bookmarks and they would make great gifts for those avid readers you know!!
