Stationery doesn't need to be boring - and these metal clips most certainly prove that!
And you don't need to use them in a boring way either.
As someone who uses a huge crapload of paper (stationers hazard), I like to make sure I'm using it to its full use. All our scraps get torn into four and then clipped with one of the big clips.
The small clips are my favourite way to hang art at home. Just hammer in a nail (brass, of course) and you're good to go. The easiest and quickest way to change up your gallery wall.
We also use all the sizes to hold important letters, to-do lists and timetables. Making the boring a little bit more beautiful.
