Uber Cute Paper Clip Unboxing!

Through one of my many Instagram browsings, I came accross a lovely lady called Deb who makes the most, and I mean the most amazing paperclips. I instantly fell in love with them and I enquired about purchasing them. Deb had never sent any internationally before, anyway she is a lovely lady and we got chatting and she offered to send me some so that I could help spread the word for her, see how they posted internationally (to make sure they arrived in one piece) and do a giveaway for you guys. So are you ready for the cuteness overload? Here we go....

When they arrived they were all wrapped up in beautiful dotty tissue paper done up with twine and then when I unwrapped that they were all beautifully, individually wrapped in their own little glassine envelopes, again all done up prettily in twine. I could already see how cute they were but I really wanted to open them to get a really good look at them.

Here they are altogether happily smiling away at me. Don't they look so cute. I love how smiley they all are and just so friendly, you couldn't help but smile when you see these could you now!

It is nice to see them all bundled together in one happy crowd but the photo doesn't do them justice. In person they are very vibrant and  you can tell that all the materials used are of a high quality. The attention to detail is just simply amazing. The bunny even has cotton whiskers and a fluffy tail on the back. The hedgehog has a twine bow in her hair and all the characters have little design elements and detailing on them that gives them their beautiful little characters.

I didn't know what to expect as I have never ordered any clips that have been handmade like this, all the paper clips that I have have been brought from a shop and have therefore been mass produced. I do have two plushie clips that have been handmade but they are plushy not card etc. I do love to buy from independent crafters though. With the exception of the button, they are all made out of card which as I have said is very good quality. The clips are very sturdy and aren't going to bend or 'dog ear' too easily. I don't think they would withstand sticking out of your planner and going in and out of your bag all day but for general use they will certainly last a good fair while. I gave the clip a good hard wiggle and they are well routed in there so the characters aren't going to detatch themselves from the clip anytime soon.

I think they are truly amazing and would certainly order again as not only are her items of top notch quality, she is also a lovely lady and delivers fantastic customer service. You know that I only share items with you that I truly, genuinely love and know that you will love too!
