Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today for a new planner project using the amazing Happy Jig. I love how fun and easy this tool is, you can really make any design or shape you want. Let’s make a paperclip and a planner closure band together!
To make the “hello” paperclip, I followed the instructions in the booklet and cut the correct amount of wire (17inch). Then I placed all the different pegs on the board and started to shape the word.
The wire is so flexible and sturdy in a same time that it makes it very easy to use. And here is the beautiful paperclip specially made for my planner!
I could also make an arrow paperclip to decorate the board of the planner and some other lovely shapes I will problably add later (the tropical leaf is my favorite!)
To make the planner closure band you will need white elastic, scissors, the new Crafter’s Essentials USB Mini Glue Gun and the word “happy” (previously made with the Happy Jig).
First of all, cut the white elastic to the right length in order to fit around your planner (don’t forget to leave one inch more for the edges). Pass the elastic through the word and stick the ends using the glue gun.
Your planner band is ready! How easy and fun!
I Hope you had fun joining me today, you will love creating with your Happy Jig! Until next time!
