Monster Clips!!

I made these a while back and I thought I would do a how to for those who would like to make their own. They are really easy to make and are a lot of fun. They are embellished paper clips for all to enjoy. Just in time for Halloween or for your favorite little monster. You could use then for book marks too!
I decided to vlog while making these

Here are the supplies you will need:

Thin colored foam sheets (I got mine at a dollar store)

Scalloped circle punch – I have one from Stampin Up!

Jumbo Paper clips- not the standard size

Double sided tape

Glue dots

Googly eyes- two for each Monster you want to make.

1.punch out some scalloped circles. Punch out two for each monster you want to make.

2. Using double sided tape carefully tape the paper clip to one of the foam pieces half way down. Make sure the part that you insert paper in is down.

3. Using little pieces of double sided tape on the side where the paperclip is to secure the top of the monster.

4. Press the top foam piece on top

5. Using glue dots put on the googly eyes

And Ta-Dahh! you have Monster clips! I hope you enjoy this craft as much as I do!


  1. Shelia this will be an awesome gift for my son's preschool class! Like most other schools they only like "healthy" snacks which equals no candy for halloween! (boo!) Thanks so much for the idea!

  2. That is super cute, I love your tutorial!

  3. How cute and you did a great job explaining! I have a vlog meme called Monday Mingle - I would love to have you join in! Basically you answer questions I have posted on my blog, do a shot vlog on your blog, and then link up - it is so fun!

  4. Thanks Sheila!!

    My 5 year old granddaughter watched your instructions 3 times while I set out the supplies. I was informed as only a 5 year old can that I had the wrong glue dots since they weren't the same as yours!!

    She made Monster clips for her teacher, Grandpa and I and Mom & Dad. This weekend she and her Mom are going to make some for her Mom to hand out at work.
