  Binder Clips Covered in a Map



These are so fun to make! All you need is a map, clip and Mod Podge! I recently made a set for a friend that had the three places that she loved most cut from the map.
I was inspired by this post which used fabric and also this post which used Mod Podge (and stickers)! I tried it with some pieces of a map that were left over from another project. (I also tried it with tissue paper but it did not work.) So here is a little tutorial for you using scraps from a map! 
(It's more useful to me cut up then it ever was when I tried to read it!)

First cut the map into a little strip. 
Paint the top of the clip and press the map into the indentation at the top of the clip (example below). 
This will allow you to glide the sides into the curves of black on either side of the clip.
After you smooth the map into place cover it with a layer of Mod Podge.
Simply place on the aluminum foil and let it dry.

Now go find something to clip with a little bit of happiness!
