Cute, fun and simple!


When a project is cute, fun AND simple, that's about as good as it gets for me. These adorable little photo holders are actually binder clips. (The box says large on it. I got a dozen in a box at Office Max.) Here is the big supply list: binder clip, one piece of designer paper (2 X 3 1/4), 2 felt flowers, 1 black brad, 6" Pumpkin Pie narrow grosgrain ribbon, pop up glue dot, glue stick. Yes, I used glue stick to adhere the paper, and it works great! You do want to have the ribbon on there. It holds the metal pieces together securely so the picture stays there. You could easily use a stamped image or a flower from the Pretties Kit in place of the felt flowers. I've also seen them with the big flower from the Pretties Kit secured to the metal clip so it's covered up.
P.S. The two cuties in the photo are my nephews Ted and Nat. They are sweeties!
