A few folks emailed me yesterday asking whether the little flags I posted on Instagram yesterday would be for sale in the shop...the answer is no.
While they are super cute...I think they are so simple and fun to make. Some things are way better shared than sold:) I do forsee them popping up in Bananafishstudio digital products though...
starting right now.
For free. Happy NSD! By the way, they are free everyday...not just today.
If you were wondering where I got the idea well...I kinda sorta got it from these lovely little bows I saw on the Silhouette blog a few weeks ago that prompted a search to actually purchase paper clip flags.
But I couldn't find any.
I found a lot of things with epoxy bits at the top and ribbon and such, but nothing quite like what I was looking for. I dug through my own stash and came up with some ribbon clips which I like, but I'm not much of a ribbon user. So I decided to make some with paper. After tweaking the design to make them easier to cut, I turned them into a PDF and there you go. I decided to forgo the Silhouette in favor of scissors. I like keeping things basic. Most of us have a pack of clips, a pair of scissors, and some paper right? While messing around I stumbled on the fact that by cutting a slit in my diecuts and using my craft knife, I can use those with paper clips too. See below.
