Red white and blue crochet paper clip tutorial 

I recently discovered the trend  of decorative paper clips. Maybe I’m just out of the loop because I don’t use planners or paperclips much, but apparently cute paper clips are a thing in the planner and stationary world. Some of them I’ve seen are pretty darn cute! I made a trio of yellow green and pink ones last week but thought it’d be fun to make some red white and blue ones in prep and celebration of the upcoming holiday -4th of July!
