Glue or tape a wooden peg to the non decorated side.
Use glue or double sided sticky tape to fasten the wooden peg to the back of the circle
Your jumbo paper clip is now ready to clip to anything you want.
Decorating can be as simple as painting, colouring or sticking on pom poms, tissue paper and glitter. You could try wax paper crayon decoration and stick these on.
Simple butterfly design
As long as the peg is covered by the card, you can try out lots of different designs. How about cutting out a butterfly template for children to colour in. You could even theme your clips for Easter, birthdays or Christmas.
