DIY Bow Paper Clip Bookmark

I love collecting scraps of everything, especially ribbon :)
I love taking the ribbon / rope handles off old shopping bags, because it gives me a huge variety of different of ribbon and just stuff that I would otherwise have to buy a whole spool of. It is also a great way to recycle such pretty things :)
But after a while of collecting, I would find myself having a whole bunch of stuff that I don't know what to do with because I don't like throwing things away..... Chi is always telling me that I my room is a big clutter and stuff everywhere and she thinks I have "garbage" everywhere.
This is a quick and fun way to use up all my old ribbons and add a little color to the office :)
Tying bows to the end of paper clips not only makes it easier to spot, but it makes it so so cute!!!!!

What you will need: 
  • old ribbon
  • paper clips
  • lighter (Optional)

What to do:
  • Tie your ribbon on the paper clip and cut.
  • Use a lighter to melt the ends of polyester ribbons to keep it from fraying.
  • For cotton ribbons you can use a bit of glue/clear nail polish and dab it at the end to keep it from fraying as well
