During my last visit at my local dollar store I spotted boxes of colorful paper clips. Can you imagine 300 really cool paper clips for one buck. I couldn't resist. I picked up several boxes. I have two kids and we're always looking for paper clips. Plus I was sure I wanted to do an art piece with them. The colors were great.
This is one way I used the paper clips. I'm weaving it into my plastic bag baskets.
I love the dollar store. I'll be posting more pics of all the other uses I have for this very common item.
