April Showers Paper Clips

Good Morning Stampers!

How was your day yesterday.  Remi kept me busy all day.  I was able to do some cleaning when she took her nap.  I need to get my stamp room cleaned.  We are taking Zoie to the Fairie Gardens today.  Maybe before and after the visit I can work some more in my room.  Wish me luck!

Paper clips are a hot item right now.  They are used in planners, on cards, and in scrapbook pages.  I am a member of a Facebook group where we make and share paper clips.  This month the theme was April Showers. I immediately thought of the saying "April Showers bring May Flowers".  I went with that idea.  I used our Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree Builder punch to make the clouds.  I then used the droplet in the Tree Builder punch to make the raindrops.  Won't this look great in a planner?

To continue with the theme I wanted to do some flowers.  I used the Bird Builder punch and the wide oval punch to make my tulips.  My good friend Amanda Frankel has a great video showing how to make the tulips.  Here is the tulip paper clip.

Now I have some fun paper clips for my planner!  Have you made any paper clips?  I would love to see them if you have.

Thanks for visiting me today!  I am working on cutting the kits for my Bags & Tags which is next week.  I also need to get my cards for the May workshop created.   Have a Super Saturday!
