Planning on a Budget: DIY Ribbon Clips

Hello Planner Lovers!

Planner clips are an easy way to mark pages you need easy access to. Instead of using plain old paperclips, I thought it would be fun to share with you all how you can decorate your very own clips with ribbon or string you have lying around the house.

If you don’t have ribbon, you can find them by the spools at practically any store. I know Walmart carries them for as little as $0.98 per spool.


The first clip I’d like to share is the most common and you’ve probably seen them in people’s planners before. All you need is about six to eight inches of ribbon and a paperclip. You can use one or more colors depending on your liking. This clip is so simple and easy to make you’ll find yourself wondering why you haven’t made them before.


The next ribbon clip is a bit more complex but almost as easy. For this you need a six inch piece of ribbon, a paperclip of course and a little bit of thread. Click the photo for step by step instructions on how to make that cute bow paperclip.

Have any other ideas on how to utilize ribbon to make a paperclip? Leave a comment below to share your idea with everyone!
