Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape-Large Paper Clips

This was another item my stampers made at last week’s Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape Stamp Camp.  Another item in my stash (I know, I know) I found that was perfect after perusing the Pinterest posts was large paper clips.

Here is the one I designed:

Washi Tape Ideas-Large Clip Skeleton

 

The directions are pretty easy.  Here are the materials you will need:

  • Whisper White CS
  • Washi Tape
  • Large Paper Clip
  • Sticky Strip
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Punches/Accents for Middle Accent
  • SU Grid Paper

Here are the instructions:

Cut the card stock just a little shy of the width of the washi tape.  For this size of clip, the length was 8-1/2″ long by 3/4″ wide.

Lay the card stock strip on the grid paper (helps with eyeing the matchup).  Carefully apply washi tape to one side of the card stock (washi tape will not release easily on this little piece), turn over and apply washi tape to the other side of the card stock – make sure it is smoothly put down on the card stock.  You don’t want to see the Whisper White CS – this CS is just to make the washi pieces sturdy.

Cut strip into 2 pieces – one about 3-1/2″; one about 5″.  Curl the 5″ piece with a pencil or your fingers and set aside.  Make pennant on 3-1/2″ piece by cutting in center and then cutting off triangles.  Apply a 2″ section of Sticky Strip to the pennant piece – keep red tape on for a bit yet.

Take the larger piece and make a large loop – trim if too big before releasing the red tape.  Once happy with the size of your loop, take off the red tape and butt the ends of the loop at the middle, pressing it into the Sticky Strip.

Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on either side of the large paper clip.  Release the paper pieces from the Stampin’ Dimensionals and press to either side of the loop.  Then take washi tape and gather the loop in center and adhere to the back of the pennant piece.

Add accents, punches, etc. to dress up the clip.

Enjoy!
