Altered paper clips the bee theme

I decided I wanted to make a bee themed altered paper clips. I love making the paper clips. . I designed them in Cricut design space. The file will be posted at the end of this post.

I want to provide some helpful hints on how to complete these bees. Make sure you have an extra mat that you can actually glue all of the pieces together. It makes it so much easier to put these together. You also want to use the custom dial setting intricate cut and a sticky mat. Use your spatula tool to pull the images off the sticky mat. I use a less sticky mat to put the images together. I hope this makes sense. You can find this file at



Paper Clips and Cricut Explore


I woke up early this morning.  That is normal for me since I work during the week.   Pinterest and Periscope have captured my attention lately.  I spend my lunch time perusing both platforms.  It is a great stress reliever for me.

I had dinner with my son last night.  We went to the Dollar Tree after dinner.  I bought some neon paper clips.  I watched scopes about planners and dcorated paper clips.  I decided to make my own.  I have a Cricut Explore machine so why not. 

The roses on the paper clips were made months ago. I hot glued them to the paper clips.  They are so cute.  I plan on making more this weekend and and scoping it.  It will be my first scope on Periscope!  Find me on Twitter @BlushLipstick
