Paper Clip Jewlery Hip2Save

If you’re looking for an easy craft to add to your summer to-do list, check out this super cute and fun to make DIY jewelry using paper clips and craft tape. It’s simple enough for kids and I guarantee you’ll want to join in too! Get creative with different colored and patterned tape found in most craft stores.

DIY Paper Clip Jewelry

For this Craft You’ll Need:

  • Paper Clips
  • Washi Tape or Duct Tape (pictured tape is from Target’s craft section)
  • Optional Beads or Small Pendants

How to make paper clip jewelry Hip2Save
Directions: Plan out how long you want your bracelet or necklace to be and hook paper clips together. Tear off an inch or so of tape and wrap it around the middle of each paper clip. Press down to seal tape with your finger at the edges so it won’t unravel. That’s it – easy peasy!
Paper Clip Necklace Hip2Save
If you want more of a challenge, try creating the double necklace pictured above – made with hanging paper clips and beads at the end. To make this necklace, create two strands of 24 paper clips each (or enough to fit over your head) and attach the ends to the top of one vertical paper clip. Then to the bottom of that same paper clip, attach five strands of two paper clips each. Before taping, attach five beads from the craft store to each end.

My kids and I loved both this craft! If you’re working with boys, you can definitely include more masculine colors! This is a great craft for summer camps, scouts, or simply an afternoon at home. This idea was inspired by the photos from How About Orange.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
