Holiday Decorative Clip Embellishments

vintage-holiday-decorative-clips-1Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend.

I shared this idea of decorative clips a few months ago. Its such a great way to use up those cute scraps. Simply attach scrap paper to a large paper clip by folding it over the lower “rung” and stapling at the top. You can then further decorate the scraps with glitter, buttons, ribbons, stickers, etc. Or, small, mini ornaments!

This summer has flown by, like it always seems too, and before you know it, Christmas will be upon us. These decorative clips will look great attached to a gift tag, Christmas card or other holiday project, don’t you think?

These holiday clips are trimmed with vintage Christmas seals, vintage plastic holly and glitter. Black paper from a vintage scrapbook makes for a great chalkboard to jot down the wish list for Santa.

A vintage reflector tops this scrap below and the vintage Christmas seal above is framed with a bubble of plastic (recycled from packaging), and filled with festive confetti to create a “snow globe” clip.

These decorative clips just slide on, as a normal paper clip, and will add a nice touch to your holiday gifting this year! So, when you begin to craft for the holidays, be sure to save those scraps and extra trimmings!

    Why not connect them and make a garland? Short chains, jump rings or bits of ribbon would do nicely. These are so cute and there are sooooooo many possibilities.

    Hi Michelle,
    I am busy collecting little ‘scraps’ of holiday paper and ribbons for future ‘projects’. I also just found a dozen more vintage colored little glass ornaments that I know someone I know and love will want…desperately! As always, it is a great pleasure to see what you have been ‘up to’ in your ‘creative crafts’ department! Mary Tschopp
