We had so much fun making these. We painted these while we painted our nails, a great big girls day!!
Grab some boring plain paper clips from the office supply store and your favorite color of nail polish to make this simple project.
Place the clips on a piece of cardboard and paint the one side of the clip with the polish. Let it dry completely. Flip the cardboard over and paint the other side. Let it dry again. Once it is dry completely, remove the clip from the cardboard and clip it on the board the other way so you can paint the other parts of the clip. The reason I suggest this is so the clip gets an even coat of polish without the polish gluing the clip together.
Once the entire clip is covered, it’s time to add decorations. We added a button to one, to do this find a button with a loop back. Thread the clip through the loop and move it to the top of the clip. Then hot glue the button in place. For another one we added ribbon or rick rack. The last one we used some novelty yarn.
Now the kids can be reading in style.
