That magic hour, bounded by love

Continuing the "World of Work" theme at  Gingersnap Creations, this week's challenge is to use  an office supply. I choose colored paperclips and turned them into darling book marks. The colors of the paperclips were the inspirational spark for the project. After stamping each image twice on patterned paper adding shiny German scrap, rhinestones and word snippets, I sandwiched the clips between the paper. I added some sparkley thread and tiny charms to complete the bookmarks. There is a closeup of the Paris clip, so you can get a better look. Now who doesn't have some paperclips in their junk drawer, so go ahead and use them up.
Till next time, artfully yours Gerri

"Paris ,thrill me. .......Oh, if I a birdie I might be......That magic hour, bounded by love."

  8. I have to make some of these. what a great concept. Thanks for sharing and so easy to make.
    Was it hard to fit the 2 images back to back since they would be placed opposite?
    Hope you understand what I am trying to say. You have a great blog!!!!
