Paperclip Magnets

Hi guys, happy Friday! Hope you've had a great week! Mine has been...well, to keep it's been pretty crappy :( As I mentioned on Monday, it was my birthday on Tuesday and I was SO SICK the whole night before and the whole day on my I literally saw midnight come and go and mid-puke session I thought to myself..."self, happy fricken birthday!" Haha! I can laugh about it now because I am feeling SO MUCH better but it was a TERRIBLE flu bug and I was feelin' pretty sorry for myself...however, after some fluids, some tender lovin' TLC from my hubby and bleach-cleaning everything, I am back and feelin' much better! I had some extra time this afternoon so I put together this fun, very easy, very quick, DIY paperclip magnet project to display some photos at my real-life job...I have a cubicle that has a magnetic strip at the top and I have been searching for some cute, magnetic photo clips but have not found I thought why not just make my own?!
I found these  cute little clippies at Micheal's (after my coupon they came out to be around a buck!) and I just used an old magnet that we had received in the mail from our mortgage lender (it had a cheesy calendar on it)...I just cut it into strips and hot-glued the strips on the back of the clips and taaa daaaa...donzo! Yep, it was that easy!
 All the supplies!

And a close up...I just had to because this picture is so stickin' cute...Yes I know, buggy looks JUST LIKE's okay, I hear it pretty much EVERYDAY (I swear she's mine too!)
Pretty easy huh?! Kind of a fun idea for displaying your photos without having to put holes in them because usually the office cubicles are made of a thick, heavy-duty fabric that you can pin things up with these special pins but I just hate putting holes in my pictures and now I don't have to :)
Plus, they are super festive with Valentine's Day coming up and is in the air...I can feel it...can you?!?! :) Have a good weekend!
