Altered office supplies - Paper clip bookmarks

We've all seen these. Nothing new here but I was having fun in my scrapbook room this morning when I couldn't sleep and started playing around with the office stuff that was sitting around. I used the 3 flower SU! punch and some scrap paper to make the paper clip bookmarks.
           
It's really easy. You punch out some flowers, poke a hole with your paper piercer put the two smaller flowers on one side of the paper clip and the biggest one on the back. Stick a brad through all 3 flowers and unfold. I tap them with my hammer to make sure they are totally flat and secure. So easy your kids can help. My little girl likes to arrange the flowers when I make these during decent hours.
        
The other random office supply I put paper on is the binder clips. Again, nothing new but I wanted to share in case you haven't tried it yet. For this you simply cut the paper to size, put on some Mod Podge and stick the paper onto the clip. It's a great project to do while you're not sleeping.  lol  :) 
   
When you can't sleep what do you like to do?
I rarely take my insomnia medication because it makes me feel funny. When I can't sleep I like to find crafts that I can do quietly or I surf the internet. OH! I almost forgot, I signed up for Stampin Up. I'm excited to give that a try. Cheaper supplies is always a plus. :)

These are soooo cute!!!

I feel your pain regarding insomnia. It's so frustrating! At least, you make the most of it by getting crafty. :) BTW, congrats on becoming an SU! demo. How exciting!!!

Great job on the clips! You always need a little something around for a gift! I have the wee hours challenge too! I usually end up in the craft room telling myself I should be asleep!! Blessings to you!

Very cute! Thanks for the ideas!
I also get insomnia and don't take medicine. I don't get anything done, but I do like surfing!

Hi there! I am so in love with the wonderful projects you have here. Great idea for those sleepless nights! I bought a ton of binder clip holders from a yard sale and will alter away now. ;) You left a comment on my Inktegrity design blog and your name was chosen randomly to win the digi set that I released today! If you could email me back, I will send the Tugboat set your way. Thank you so much, I am now a loyal follower of this wonderful blog. :D

Great job on the clips! When I can't sleep, I just toss and turn instead of getting up and being productive.

Congrats on signing as a demo and best of luck to you. Hope the new changes they have put in place don't force you to change your blog.

Hi Lespea,
I was behind the scenes on my web site Pawsitive Pit Bulls, and I saw that you linked to the Pit Bull abuse page. I wanted to personally stop by and thank you for that.
I love dabbling in cakes too, so I saved it to favs, and will return to chit chat if I remember, lol.

Also, I want to share my blog with you, since you enjoyed my web site, I know for sure you will enjoy it! Anytime a person is sitting on the fence about Pits, or wants to argue that they are the only breed that attacks, just point them to this blog -

Thanks, have a blessed holiday weekend!
