Paper Corner Paper Clips On my Work Desk

Today is Wednesday, so I’m joining up with the group at Stamping Ground to show what is on our work desk today. I’ve been working on a swap where you send your partner 2 paper corner paper clips for their journals. The swap was inspired by a video by Gi Kerr that you can watch HERE . Some took longer to create then others. At first I was making the corner first and then embellishing. When I made the last one today it seemed to come together faster by picking the embellishments first and then choosing the background corner paper.

In any case I do like the finished product. You can see where I added one to my junk journal here:

Enjoy the rest of your week!

I started paper crafting in 1995 when I first tried embossing with powder, I was so excited and couldn't believe it was so easy to make something so beautiful. Creativeseconds was started as a way of selling secondhand craft supplies and cards on Ebay and Etsy. You will find creative cards, tags, and paper crafting projects here as well as craft room organizational ideas. Follow along with me and comments are welcomed and appreciated.

  1. Karen, your corners are beautiful, and a wonderful idea. I have so many scraps which could be used for things like this, so I think I will have a go at something similar soon, it’s a fab idea. Thanks for the inspiration. Have a wonderful day, stay safe, hugs, Valerie.

  2. Well, I’ve ever heard of paper corner clips but aren’t they fabulous? I love the different colours and embellishments you’ve used and they really do look great on the corner of the page. These swaps kick up some interesting ideas!

  3. I’m like Jan, I have never heard of them either but they are all wonderful. I have seen book marks a bit like this, but these are so much more fun. Happy WOYWW. Take care and stay safe, with love and God Bless, Caro xx (#11)

  4. Your corners are beautiful, Karen! I haven’t heard of these before but I suppose they are like a tuck spot on a journal page, where you can tuck something behind. I love your box of buttons! I’ve also got a big box of buttons but most of them aren’t very interesting ones. Thank you for visiting, and I’m glad you enjoyed reading about my various activities!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  5. Karen, I love them. I was just thinking about making some corner bookmarks for my shop. I really love the way you embellished yours. They are so intricate and the quotes are fantastic. I like the idea of the swap too. I used to host an ATC swap but it became a little to much work so we all called it quits. But the fun was receiving those miniature works of art. Be safe and have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Hi – Twiglet here – just found how to contact you! Thanks for your comment on my WOYWW blog. I love your corner clips – what a fab idea. AND I am such a button fan and that box of metal buttons really drew me in! Send me your address and I will see how I can organise a little lavender parcel for you.

  8. Hi Karen – I just parcelled some little lavender bags for you and then I did wonder if I am allowed to post lavender to USA? I know they have strict rules about plant material etc. What do you think? I would hate them not to get to you. Jo
