Decorated binder clips


Trim your paper to fit the front and back of the binder clip. Apply modge podge to one side at a time and cover with the strips of paper.

Once the glue or modge podge is dry decorate with more paper, stickers or other embellishments. Word to the wise, if you are putting names or words on yours, make sure the silver clippy "leg" part is pointing downwards before you put your words on. Otherwise when they are actually clipped onto papers, the words will appear upside down. Click on the collage and look at first photo, the word Ta-Da is upside down.

Wrap in clever packaging, and deliver! We gave some of these as teacher gifts, and some to my home schooling mommy friend.


Words to use:
child's name
teacher's name
days of the week
to call
to file
to read
to send
to copy
to grade
graded
small photos of animals, flowers, things you collect

cute stuff! Baby number three should be here near the end of June, beginning of July! We are having a little girl! , and then we are done! I don't know how you do it, but I think 3 will be plenty to keep me busy!

What a great idea. I think I'll try this as part of Monkey's teacher's end of the year gifts.

This is such a fabulous idea! I linked up to you and modified it to use maps instead of scrapbook paper! Thanks for the inspiration!
