Hello everyone! It’s Jennifer here with three super quick and easy, yet super cute ideas for planner clips. I don’t know about you, but I love planner clips. The more the merrier! I used the June kit and the June kit add on to make these.
- Paper clips
- Hot glue
- Card stock
- Bow (from kit add on)
- Puffy stickers (from kit add on)
- Washi tape
- Felt (optional)
Let’s start with the simplest clip: the bow. All you have to do is place some hot glue on the back middle portion of the bow and stick it to your paper clip. I used a jumbo-sized paper clip for this one. Make sure you are gluing the bow to the correct end of the paper clip - if you glue to the other end, it won’t work. If you want to be fancy, you can cover up the hot glue with a small bit of felt, but this part is optional. Easy peasy, right?
Next there is the heart clip. This is almost just as quick and easy as the bow clip. I love making planner clips out of puffy stickers, and these heart ones are so adorable! Since it is a sticker, I start by adhering the sticker to a piece of card stock, then fussy cutting it out. Now all you have to do is whip out your hot glue gun and glue that sucker, I mean sticker.. ahem, to another paper clip. Regular sized paper clips work best for this clip. You can also cover up the hot glue with a small piece of felt if you’d like. Personally, I don’t take this extra step since the hot glue dries clear.
Finally, there’s the washi flag clip. I love washi almost as much as I love planner stickers. The June kit came with a gorgeous gold polka dot washi, and the add on came with a beautiful black and white geometric print washi. For your clips, tear off a strip of washi that is about 3.5 to 4 inches long. Next, cut your washi strip in half lengthwise. Thread one of your cut washi strips through the end of the paper clip. I used regular sized paper clips for this project as well. Carefully fold the washi in half and stick the two sticky sides together. Try to line the edges up the best you can. Since washi tape is so forgiving to work with, if the edges don’t line up just right the first time, you can easily peel them apart and try again. Finally, trim the end of the washi to about 1 to 1.5 inches. If you want to be fancy about it, you can pinch the ends together aand snip the washi on the diagonal to create a flag shape.
