As you know, Gallery Idol is underway and there are just two days left to VOTE! Word on the street is that you should vote for entry #6!!

Last Friday, when I found out I was in the Top 20 group, my mind immediately was a flurry of DIY embellishment ideas!

As I sat at my desk on Friday afternoon, scoring IQ tests and writing reports, I started fidgeting with some paperclips on my desk…then I got an idea…

On Saturday, I turned my idea into a card and even though I didn’t enter this DIY embellie into the contest, I thought I’d share it with you here!

I channeled my love for Office Depot with this one by using some supplies that you might find on any given workday!
I created a little corkboard for this card and then a fun notebook page to feature the sentiment.
The paperclip flower is quite possible the easiest DIY embellishment ever! I pulled out my hot glue gun…which I LURVE and adhered the paperclips to a circle punched piece of paper. Stick a button in the middle and call it a day!
Now, you can’t see it in this photo, but I also adhered a little magnet on the back of the flower. This way, the recipient can mount this embellie on the fridge to help hold important reminders and papers! Don’t you just love a double duty embellishment?
Well, that’s all for my Gallery Idol rejects. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I’ll get to play in the next round and maybe share a few more rejects with you!
Thanks for stopping by for some Damask Love…now go VOTE VOTE VOTE in the Gallery Idol competition!!!!

  1. OH EM GEE!! First of all, to call this a “reject” is just wrong on so many levels. This is ANYTHING but a reject!! Second of all, I think you and I are twins separated at birth – except that I was born about 15 years before you!! LOL I loves me some office supplies – I run and skip through the aisles at Staples. It’s my home away from home!! If I had a card like this just happen to show up in my mailbox, I’d probably wet my pantaloons!! LOL This seriously is incredible!! Good work, chickie!!

  2. Is it a daisy? Is it a sun? Whichever…it IS ADORABLE!!! And I know we would get along famously if we were more than “imaginary internet friends” – I, too, love Office Depot/Staples/heck, even the office supply aisle of WalMart. And I also never put a naked button on my cards…yes, I see that wee bit o’Bakers Twine (another thing that makes my heart go pitter patter). Love the woodgrain on the cork frame! Looks just like the corkboard in my kiddos’ room! Bravo, girlie!

  3. Dang girl, you are so clever!!! Love that paperclip flower! I LOVE how you take everyday objects and just think outside the box – to end up with stunners like this! Best of luck!!!

  4. I love everything about this card. The corkboard and the flower, awesome. All your cards are awesome. It must have been hard to choose which one to put in the Idol.
