Paper clips are cute little stationeries that are used to keep our essential papers or documents clipped together. If you ever give it a thought these tiny clips actually serve an important part in our lives when it comes to keeping all our important papers and documents sorted. Usually, paper clips can be bought from any stationary store. They come in various colours which make a box full of paper clips look like a priced possession. Well, it is indeed a priced possession for most working people and even for the students since they need it all the time. How about you invest some time in crafting your own heart-shaped paperclips at home? For people who are into art and craft, this could be a great exercise for them. That being said, let’s learn the steps to make your very paper clips.
Steps To Make Heart Shaped Paper Clips
In order to make heart shaped paper clips at home, you will be requiring certain items that you need to assemble first. The things that you will be required are as follows:
- Wire and
- Jewelry Pliers
Well, that’s all you need to craft your own heart-shaped paper clips. Now let’s move on to the steps.
- The first thing that you need to do is cut the wire. Make sure that it is 4 to 5 inches long because if you cut it shorter than that then it may become difficult for you to bend the endings.
- After you are done cutting wire into the required length, find the middle point of the wire and bend it into a point. The wire should be bent into a wide u-shape.
- The next thing that you need to do is take the jewelry pliers and curl each of the ends of the ends of the wire. While curling the ends be careful with the jewelry pliers so that you don’t hurt your fingers in the process. For people who don’t have jewelry pliers, they can also use a needle to curl the ends.
- Once you have curled the ends of the wire now, press the curled ends towards each other. In order to give it the shape of a proper heart, try to curl in the wire a bit more on the inside. You can use your fingers in order to do that because it will be easier for you that way.
After you are done, you can have your own heart-shaped paper clips which you can use for any purpose you want. You can use it in the office, school or anywhere you may please. In fact, you can even use these heart-shaped paper clips on the envelope or the letter in case if, you want to write a letter to your loved one. With the right mindset, it takes only about 5 minutes to craft these hearts shaped paper clips. If you want to get more creative then, you can even make any other shape that you want. You can also color these paper clips if you want in order to make them look all the more attractive.
Thus, you can see that it’s really easy to make your paper clips. All it takes is few minutes and you can have your own paper clips that you can use for your purpose. You can use these self-designed paper clips in the office while your colleagues use the same boring regular paper clips.
