Here is a wonderful idea for you. I was looking through one of my old scrap mags and came across this great little idea. It fit right along with the Dots and Stripes Challenge over at Frosted Designs and also for the Ribbon/Trim challenge at Clear it Out.
|All of these papers, ribbon, and flowers are from the May Kit from The Paper Trail (link below)|
Using binder clips (like you find in the office supply stores) adhere strips of paper, ribbon, yard, bling, and stickers to make a fun little picture holder.
You take a strip of paper that is the width of the binder clip, and tuck it under the front edge, then trim the back side so it fit under the back edge. Adhere with glue dots of your adhesive runner. For this picture holder, I took some wonderful ribbon and tied it to side of the clip and then frayed the ends for a fun look.
In this holder I took a tag and trimmed it to fit the clip, I placed a gem in the hole that was left from the tag.
This holder was made from a sticker tag leftover from one the the sticker sheets in the May Trail Makers Kit, then tied 2 different matching colored yarn bits to it.
The beauty of the binder clip is that it has a flat base to when you clip the picture into the holder it stand upright. You can place you holder on the side of the picture or in the middle, where ever you want it to go!!
I did 2 different sizes, but there are even bigger binder clips that you could make a holder for. There are also lots of colors the clips come it, white, black, green, red, etc so that adds to the fun.
