Chipboard clippies!

I know, I know. I am such a keener! I have copied all the cool kids again ;0) But I thought since I had some chipboard I would try some. I had not planned on doing these, cause I was not going to pay $5+ for the the clips! But I finally found some at a dollar store where I work. 5 for a buck is much better than $1+ for each clip!! Anyway, here is my first attempt. I used my cuttlebug to cut out these flower shapes. I must tell you I was very nervous about using my cuttlebug to cut these. I know it says that you can cut chipboard, but I was praying the whole time! It just felt like my acrylic mats were going to snap in half like pour Cindy's did. But alas they made it through. It was fun!! I need some more dies now ;0) I can definitely see myself making one of these for every person I know!! They are fun. I might have to make some of these for Em's school mates for an end of year treat. And I think everyone is getting one for Christmas this year...and bdays...and just because ;0) I gave these ones to my girls...they were thrilled!

I like the largest flower die for these though. I might see if I can find a smaller sized clip for the smaller dies and see how those look. They might make a cute magnet!

Thanks for stoppin' by :0)

These are great, Trace... I'll be posting mine in a few days.

BTW, I found the clips at Staples... 10 for under $3!
