Hello Kitty! Paperclip Bookmarks

I remember the sheer joy of recieving a Hello Kitty item as a kid. Everything was so cute.

I made two of these, one for my cousin, and one for myself… I had to show front and back. Besides, I wasn’t going to give away my only one! 🙂

These are giant paperclips by WalMart. The side has different ribbon scraps tied to it. I punched Hello Kitty out of a piece of scrapbook paper using a 1″ circle punch. The scallops are 1.5″ punches, and the flower on the back is also a punch.

All the paper is textured cardstock except the Hello Kitty printed one. I put a rhinestone on the flower on the back, and the flower Hello Kitty is holding. Her bow has glittered dimensional paint added.

I assembled the front and back pieces first, and then used a low-temp hot glue gun to attach both sides to the paperclips. I read a tutorial that said glue dots also work, but the Glue Gun was closer… and I got lazy.

Size: 4″ high

  1. Adorable! I’ve made a bunch of these for our craft fairs! Love how yours came out! I use a hot glue gun. They say the E8000 works great – but the smell was too overwhelming for me!!!

    I love the Hello Kitty stuff. These paper clips are such a great idea. You must be pretty young – Hello Kitty came out when I was already way too old to play with any of the stuff. 🙂
