Christmas Paper Clips


This is a project where I've used some paper clips and dressed it up for a christmas theme paper clips swap that I'm in.

I've created some ornament shaker boxes to include as part of my design here. You can refer to "Ornament Shaker Boxes" in my tips and tricks section.

I've used a corrugated paper and a vellum for the background here to create more dimension and texture to it. As for the hat, I've used some white felt with red card stock.

I've also added some sequins and snowflakes punch outs to further elaborate the cheerful season.

To attach the overall finished piece to the paper clips, I've used some heavy duty double sided foam tapes and later cover it with another small piece of matching colour card stock with the back of the piece.

Hope you all will give the shaker boxes technique a try!
