Paper Clips- Oak Tree Design Team Project

Hey Oak Tree Fans!!!  I am here to share another easy project using Oak Tree Stamps Digital Files with Print Then Cut on the Cricut Explore.  I am addicted to making paper clips for my planner and I figured I'd show you how quick and easy it really is to make your own.


1. First Print Then Cut your images (2 inches). You can make them whatever size  you'd like just make sure they won't take up your whole paper clip. 
2. Ink the edges. I just like to ink everything!!! (this step is optional) 
3. Cut out 1" circles or smaller depending on your images. 
4. Hot glue your paper clip to the back and add the circle over the glue. Make sure your paper clip is facing the right direction, see the pic below. If you glue both the rounded parts down you won't be able to clip it to your pages. 

DONE!!!!! Can't get much easier than that. The hardest thing is making sure you don't glue the paper clip upside down. They are so cute and you can use them for just about anything you can think of. I use mine for my planners, bookmarks, journals, and Pocket Letters.  

Don't these just look so cute peeking out... 
If you don't have the digital files, you can easily do this with the stamps and color them whatever colors you'd like.
