Hippy Clippies

For today's project, you need:

jumbo paperclips (97 cents for a box at Walmart (of 12? 15? there were a lot!)

1 3/8" punch, scallop punch

pop dots

pail from the Target dollar spot

white and colored CS (Papertrey Stampers Select White, Su! Real Red and Pixie Pink )

CANDY!* look for Valentines message Hershey Kisses, the little flags say I love you, xoxo, etc

Stamp the animals on white CS, color with medium of your choice and punch out the faces with the circle. Punch out a scallop from your colored CS and attach. Squash a pop dot to the middle of th back of the scallop, Then press the top loop of the paper clip over it so the glue dot is in the middle of the loop. Add another scallop punch to the back to hide the pop dot. Put a greeting, a different animal or coordinating DP on the back so both sides look pretty.

Tie a ribbon around the handle, fill the bucket with candy and insert the clippies so they are standing up (and peeking out!) Now you have a little bouquet bucket and these clippies have many uses, bookmark etc
* Look for the Valentines message Hershey Kisses the little flags say I love you, etc, too cute!!
