Make It! DIY Paperclip Flags


If you’re anything like me then you’re probably a sucker for a good notebook filled with LISTS! I have so many lists; ones for work, my blog, craft ideas, films to watch, new years resolutions, mid-year resolutions – the list (ha!) is endless. With so many lists and scrawlings happening at once, it is way too easy to loose track of things and I found myself wanting a way to quickly find my most important and current musings. Enter DIY paperclip flags!
