I mounted the paperclips on a piece of card, with a ribbon wrapped around the middle, just to provide a bit of an added embellishment.
The pink were definitely my favourite...
Paired with some cute little notepads or notepaper, it made a cute little gift to give.
The red and purple looked good too!
There are so many cute ribbons around to choose from - I just love the polka dots and stripes! I used 6mm ribbon, I found this made the best size bow for a standard sized paperclip.
Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to make these - the process itself if quite easy, but it is time consuming. I sat myself in front of the TV at night times and did all of the sewing then. I enjoy doing this type of thing, so the timeframe didn't really worry me.
