Technique Tuesday is back!

Here I am, back with Technique Tuesday! And this one is a fun and cute one!
Jumbo Paperclips!
The idea of the Jumbo paperclips has been around a while now, but I have only just be able to source the actual paperclips recently, so here is my tutorial for you all!
Punches: Scallop, 1-3/8" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle
Stamps: Tart & Tangy
CS: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Apple Cider DSP (I think thats what it was called. It is now retired)
Other: Jumbo paperclips (102mm), 2-way glue, snail adhesive, stampin' glitter, 3-D Dots
Step 1:
Punch out 2 scallops, 2 of the larger circle, and 2 smaller circles
Step 2:
Dot 2-way glue onto the cherries, and dip into stampin' glitter. Flick your finger on the back of the circle to remove excess glitter, and leave to dry. Here are the two cherry circles with the glitter
Step 3:
Mount the smaller circle onto the larger one, then onto the scallop. Repeat with other pieces
Step 4:
Add a 3-D Glue Dot to the back of the scallops, remembering to line the cherries up so that they will be facing the correct way
Step 5:
Push the end of the paperclip into the 3-D Dot, pressing hard. Repeat with other scallop, on otherside of paperclip
Finished project:
Here are a few examples that I have made with the same stamp set. Simple, cute and effective!
