Ephemera Paperclips

I think I am addicted to making ephemera paper clips. It is so much fun using up scraps and pieces and combining them into a pleasant image. They are miniature works of art.

There are no rules to making ephemera paper clips and if you do a Google search you will find a variety of examples. The only things you must use are a paper clip and some kind of adhesive. After that, you can collect whatever is around you. I tend to collect pieces that relate to each other by color.

Video Tutorial:

The first two I made were based on a journal I made in a past tutorial. I used leftover pieces of painted paper that were used for the cover of the book and coordinated additional pieces.

As I said, these were so fun to make. It has inspired me to do a series of miniature art pieces.
