Craft Corner: Anthro Baby Hair Clips

BEHOLD! Anthro baby clips!
If you're like me, you don't have a lot of downtime during the day, but still like to craft every so often and have SOMEthing to show for your creative efforts.
Other than producing a daily weekly monthly blog, I have found that making hair clips and other small things for baby SO fun and addictive.

Decorative Paperclips from Anthro or other paper goods stores
Small alligator/snap clips from Target, Michael's or Amazon. I got mine here.
Needle, thread

Step 1: Buy cute embroidered Anthro paper clips while they are on sale (in my case, they were $5 at the Black Friday sale). I got this idea from my supermom friend, Viv, who did this for her baby a year ago.
Step 2: Release the butterflies from their painted metal bonds. I.e. snip the paperclips off.

Step 3: Grab your alligator clip and stitch either in between, or through the top and bottom, securing the clip to the fabric.

And you're done! Wasn't that easy? And strangely satisfying? Don't worry. Now you can do 11-14 more (depending on the size of the box).
Step 4: Clip quickly and quietly on the head of the closest female baby you happen to see.

They will not mind at all, and they certainly will not tear it off as soon as they notice its presence. Nope, they sure won't.

Nor will they smear orange pulp into their hair as they try to claw it off after you've repeatedly played keepaway-with-the-clippy. It's fun. You should try it.

Happy Friday, dear friends--hope the sun is shining wherever you are.
