Altered Paper Clip Swap – Round 2 – Cricut Community

I had so much fun participating in Round 1 of the Altered paperclip swap on the Cricut Community that i decided to participate again in Round 2, but this time we had a theme to work from. The two categories i chose was “From the Garden” and “Anything Goes”.
This is how my clips turned out:
Swap Round 2
Think they turned out real cute.  Hope my fellow swappers like them as much as i do Smile


  1. Hi Lee!! I am so happy to have found your blog and thrilled that you've joined us at The Outlawz!!! These are adorable and I can't wait to browse your archives!!

  2. Saw your blog on The Outlawz and thought I'd come over and take a look and I'm glad I did - your paper clips are adorable!!

  3. WOW, those are really cute!! Are they Cricut cuts? If so, what did you put over the top of them? They're so cute! I need to go look and see if I'm in one of your groups!

    Have a great evening!

  4. Hi Diana. Afraid all the shapes were punched with punches i have. Didn't use my Cricut at all :( Bought the butterfly and frog from from a local stationery store. Look like they cut out of a thin wood and painted. Let me know if you're not in my group then i'll send you some butterflies and froggies that i have left in my stash:)

  5. Hi Lee
    It is wonderful to "meet" another South African in blogland. I love these paper clips. Please pop into my blog
    Hugs Debbie

  7. Hi Elaine,

  8. These are so cute; wonderful idea!

  9. Very sweet paper clips, nice to find another blogger/crafter in SA and especially Gauteng. You can visit me if you like.

  10. Hi Paola,

    Thank you for the kind words. Will definitely take you up on your offer. Awesome to find fellow crafters that stay close to me. We are indeed far and few between here in Johannesburg :)

  11. Hi Lee,
    Those paper clips are gorgeous. I might have to have a go myself as they would be great for teacher gifts. Maybe you could add a magnet to put them on the fridge. Hmmm! Any tips or good tutorials for getting started?
