I was intrigued by these paper clips by Studio Calico. They are utilitarian and sweet at the same time. They also seemed fairly easy to counterfeit using a variety of different techniques. Here is how I approached them:
I tried several different kinds of glue and not of them held up until I tried the hot glue. I also had fun matching patterned paper with colored paper clips. The silver on the original ones was nice, but I think the colored clips will be more fun to use.
P.S. Master Forger Jemma also had a go with these - using ribbon rather than paper!
