When I saw this activity on photojojo, I ran right out for bulldog clips to get started on a long overdue family photo wall. Unfortunately, my local Office Depot does not carry them in stock (nor does the next one down the street, which I stupidly thought was a different chain… but was the same chain!) so I got ordered a set of over-the-top zebra-printed binder clips instead.
As you can see they match the weird zebra theme we have in the office. But that’s a story for another day. Back to the activity.
Why we like it
There are so many reasons to cover your walls with binder clips and hang photos: you’ve got photos; frames are expensive; it is fun. Oh, and it is so easy you will wonder why you didn’t think of it sooner.
If you have jumbo paper clips around and some fun snapshots that you’re meaning to Do Something With, this project can be done in the span of the tiniest nap.
The instructions on Photojojo for the bulldog clip photo wall give variations like OCD-style and tips for not creasing your photos. Check ’em out.
