Altered Paper Clips - Cats

Hello, everybody!  I made some more altered paper clips!  These are a lot of fun to make and a great way to use up small scraps.  This time I went with a cat theme!  You can see my floral clips here and my frog clips here.

Supplies used:
  • DiesPoppystamps (Cozy Kitties, Sitting Cat, Walking Cat, Stitched Tunnel Tags)
  • Patterned paper:  MME Collectable "Memorable"
  • Cardstock:  Recollections Coffee and Cream 110 lb
  • Other:  Butterfly Punch (EK Success), gems, paper clips

Here is a photo of the back. They can be used just like any paper clip.  I was inspired to make these altered paper clips after watching ScrapPerfect's video here.

I plan to give these as a gift, maybe in some happy mail, so I made some pretty packaging.  All the patterned paper is from the same pad, all scraps. This cat die is Poppystamps Curious Cat, and the word stamp is from Poppystamps Purrfect Holidays.  I added a little butterfly charm.

I would like to support the following challenges:  Ally's Angels Butterflies 1/3; Butterfly Challenge 99 Spin the Butterfly Wheel with the Letter D (I went with Die-cut and Dimension) 1/3; Card Mania Anything but a Card 3/3; Crafty Calendar Things with Wings 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper May UE; Creative Craft Cottage Dies and Punches (used both) 1/3; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; DL.ART May Linky AG 1/d; heARTful Stamping AG plus Stamp 2/2; Incy Wincy Things that Fly (butterflies) 1/5; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends AG 2/3; Mod Squad How Charming 3/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 1/3; Poppystamps Patterned Paper 1/3; Scrapy Land AG w Dies sold at Scrapy Land (Poppystamps) 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Animal Magic 3/5; SUYP Cats Only Furrything Goes UE; The Cat's Pajamas Die Cutting UE; The Corrosive May AG 1/3; The Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes CAS05062018 English Country Garden (cats and butterflies) 1E; Through the Craftroom Door AG 2/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment Wk2 4/5
