Altered Paper Clip

"Spending Time with Grandparents" theme from a swap. The items can go on layouts, cards, or other projects.

Most clips I have previously altered have been very feminine and frilly~ flowers, glitter, ribbons, etc. and usually round. This was a mass production effort to have 15, as I had the swap and wanted a couple for myself.

Many of have single or widowed Grandparents, or are doing heritage pages the neutral colors were a challenge but fun. All Grandpa's don't appreciate pink! lol!
The saying is "Time with Grandparents: Priceless".
Stippling on the saying, sanding on the larger chocolate square, largest square was embossed and then DTP inked for more effect. Added a little waxy flax and clear beads. If someone wants they can add feminine colors, flowers or other embellishments to meet their specific color needs. Lots of foam squares to elevate the pieces and give support.
