Bulldog clips



I ran across a bulldog clip magnet thingy at a gift shop. I thought to myself, "Self, I could make these" and I did! I bought the big bulldog clips from Target. Two in a pack for $1.79. I glued strong magnets on the back with crystal effects. Then I cut the prongs off some build a brads. I stamped the "L O V E" onto to designer paper and punched out with the 1/2" circle punch. I attached this to the build a brads with glue dots. Then I placed the plastic dome over the top. I glued these on to the bulldog clip with crystal effects. Crystal effects is a strong adhesive as well as a product that gives your project some sheen and dimension. Then I tied ribbon from the handle.

Thanks for looking!
