Joining in on the E-Team blog hop fun. I knew these new Maya Road Embellishment Bits Kit was going to be fun to play with. Lots of options and so many uses. Trying to keep things easy peasy in the midst of holiday chaos. Between kid stuff, school stuff, and work stuff, paper crafting is precious. I have to make the most of the time in between carpool. I am all about fast and quick crafts right now.
I eyeballed those cute Round Journey Tins in the kit. With some extra supplies and paper, I was ready to make these decorative and useful jumbo paperclips with the round tins as a shaker element.
You can find this massive jar of Diamond Dust at your local craft store. Sometimes you may have to look in the floral section. The Diamond Dust will make sound, shake and not stick to your project. You can get the jumbo paper clips at your local office supplies store. The 1-3/8 circle punch was the perfect fit for the Maya Road small round Journey Tins.
The Webster's Pages, Botanical Christmas & Winter Fairy Tales 6x6 paper pad had some perfect sized designs for my project.
The 1-3/8 circle punch did the trick with its coordinating fit.
The silver round journey tins were just a little off in terms of coordinating color with the jumbo paper clip. I took my alcohol ink pen to paint just a little color directly onto the tin.
Next, to figure out how to seal the lids tightly, I used some Multi-Medium Matte and squirted a little around the inside rim lid.
With some ribbon bits around the jumbo clip, everything was ready to be assembled. Use something like E-6000 to glue the paper clip to the back of the small Round Journey Tin. Drying time is required. I have found that with something like this project and the amount of times it is handled, E-6000 seems to be more secure than something like hot glue. You can add a piece of felt, a flower, or a rosette to the other side of the jumbo clip for a more finished look.
These jumbo paper clips with a decorated round shaker tin is a cute add-on to any gift tag, holiday recipe card, or note to someone special. We all need a little help keeping our holiday lists and coupons all together, too.
