If you didn’t already know, in my other life, I’m a theatre director, and right now we’re in the throes of performances. So, over the next week, you’ll be introduced to three fabulous bloggers with three fabulous projects to share with you. I’m delighted to introduce you to the first in the bunch, Emily! She hit the paperclip on the head with this craft. Let’s give her a warm Thinking Closet welcome!

Hey there readers of The Thinking Closet. I’m Emily from The Benson Street where I blog about holidays, recipes and crafts. I am excited to be here to share with you a fun summer craft. I love hitting the beach and searching for seashells. Also, I love to make my own souvenirs like these adorable seashell paperclips. Here’s how to make your own:
Souvenir Seashell Paperclips
- Paper Clips (any will do but ones with a rounded top will be easier to glue onto)
- hot glue gun and glue
Heat up the hot glue gun and place glue at the end of the paperclip.
Place seashell on the glue on the paperclip. Position and squeeze tight. Let the glue dry. Then they are ready to enjoy and hold all your important papers together.
These nautical-inspired seashell paperclips are adorable. Plus they have a great purpose. I love things that are cute and have a purpose. It makes them that much more special.
They can also serve as a reminder of a great vacation or serve as a stylish party accessory.
These paperclips would work well at a nautical-themed wedding or party. They could hold place cards, menus and other important guest information.
I love all the variety with different shells. I love that something so pretty can be so different with each individual seashell. It is kind of like snowflakes.
I can’t wait to see these pretty summer paperclips all over my desk.
