{2 minute project}

While cleaning out my kitchen desk area I have stumbled across a ton of items that I didn’t even realize where in there.  I’ll talk a little more about the kitchen desk re-org another time, but wanted to share a quick little project I did in the middle of it (I needed a de-cluttering break if you know what I mean).  So I made these…

Aren’t they cute!?

The best part?  I had all the materials on hand so this is another $0 project!  I had these cute little felt buttons (no clue why, because I don’t remember buying them, ever), a ton of paperclips, and my trusty glue gun.

To make each clip, I simply put a smaller button behind the top of the paperclip, squeezed on a dab of hot glue, then attached the larger button to the front.  Hold it for a few seconds, and it’s set.  I use paperclips a lot when I’m organizing coupons to use on shopping trips.  I simply clip all the coupons that I know I will definitely use together and put them at the front of my coupon box!  This project took me all of maybe two minutes and cost $0 since I already had all the materials on hand!  What have you recently made that cost $0?  Please share!
