Do you ever use the clear, crystal beads for this craft? I was thinking that this would let the lights shine through the angel on the Christmas tree and give it more sparkle. I like that you use the ribbon. I was wondering if embroidery floss might work too? I have an abundance of it right now, and I could use a few new ways to use some of it up.

Who would have thought that something as simple as a paper clip would make such an adorable Christmas ornament!?!?! I always try to decorate my workplace around the holidays but have to do it on a limited budget. This would be so quirky and fun! I'm sure that my coworkers will get a real kick out of this Christmas craft. So cute!

This is very easy and simple! It will also look good if it had been wrapped with glow in the dark glue or maybe colorful Christmas lights.

So simple and sweet! The design was right in my desk drawer all along! This artist has an eye for design in everyday life. There are so many possible combinations with this craft as well. Change up the color of the butterfly paperclip, the head, the ribbon. It's all in the eye of the beholder!
