Description

These cute paper clip flowers are magnetic, so you can stick them to your fridge or your chalkboard. You can also stick notes or pictures in the paper clips.

Materials

To make the flowers ( without a stem) you'll need:
a magnet
five colored paper clips
one small circle cut out of paper
a hot glue gun

To make the flowers with a stem you'll need:
a magnet
three green paper clips strung together
four colored paper clips
one small circle cut out of paper
a hot glue gun

How to Make

  • attach your paper clips to the non magnetic side of the magnet with hot glue

  • attach the circle on top of the magnet and the paper clips

  • Tips for Taking a Great Photo:
    • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
    • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
    • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
    • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
