(Round 2 of the 25 Motif Challenge) Motif No. 1 - Tatted Butterfly on Paper Clip

Paper clip for the month - Butterflies - click on the link for the pattern at Georgia's Online Tatting Class. This is a simple and quick one, and I had designed it such that you can slip a thin ribbon on it to make a bookmark, in addition to tatting it on a paper clip. You can also tie the ribbon in such a way to make a necklace or make the head ring a little bigger and add a metal ring to hang as a pendant on a necklace chain. Quick and sweet gifts for little girls!

That is an adorable paper clip idea, Ellen! Thank you for the link to the pattern. I just found some cute striped paper clips at an office supply store. I bought them thinking that some tatting would look cute on the ends, but I had no idea what to do... now I do!

Thank you, it's great knowing you are enjoying these paper clip patterns. I'll worker harder on the patterns for the coming months, still need to think up a few more!
