What a clever little idea for a teacher gift. I thought the apple had a little worm but its actually the stem. Id be more inclined to change the color slightly and make a little worm anyway! You can let your imagination flow and think of all sorts of other motifs for the tops of the paper clips. A collection of half a dozen would make a great seller at a craft fair, too.

These paperclips are simple and yet absolutely charming! I have a daughter who is becoming certified to become an TEFL instructor. I bet some of her students would love these. Maybe she can use them to encourage them along in their studies. I can also certainly see them being used as embellishments on cards. How stinkin' cute!

Are these not the most adorable paperclips you have ever seen? Any teacher would be more than proud to have a few of these on her desk. The pattern is so easy to make, it would not take log to have a few ready to go back on the first day of school for that new teacher this year.

Back to school is a fun time. Kids love giving gifts to their teachers. This Teachers Favorite Paperclip pattern would make a great teachers gift. I think Id also make some with magnets, and some with Velcro so the teacher could place anywhere she wants, like her stapler, pens, pencil cup, etc. . .

This project is adorable and very easy to make. At this time, I do not have any teachers to make these for but I do have a young niece attending college to become a teacher. These will make a very unique graduation gift.

These are such cute fun little accessories and are really quick and easy to make, the pattern is easy to follow and so makes it ideal for beginners. They are really versatile and I have made them in a number of different yarns and crochet hook sizes. They make good bookmarks using card or long lolly sticks Andy I have also used them to create bunting for a summer fair stall.
