My daughter had a Social Studies project where she needed to make a "product" to sell among her fellow classmates. I was so happy when she came to me for creative advice!! She and I started bouncing around ideas, we needed to come up with a product that was inexpensive to make but creative enough to be something that would be useful to 5th graders. We concluded that paper clip bookmarks would be the best product for this project.
Here are the steps she used to make these genius little pieces of heaven.
Paper Clips (we used the large ones)
Hot Glue Gun (only if you prefer)
Cut your ribbon into 4"-5" long
Fold your ribbon in half then slide it in halfway thru the head of the paper clip (not the mouth)
Take the two end pieces of ribbon and feed them thru the folded end of the ribbon.
Pull till it's nice and tight.
Note: I went ahead and put a couple dabs of hot glue on the inside back of the knotted area of the ribbon. This will make sure that the knot won't come loose.
And there you go...VOILA!
