My bag's zipper has given up. The handle was broken and I had to think of a remedy to avoid struggles pulling. Then I found a paper clip. A bulb lit in my mind. I pulled out some craft materials that I had available and started my little experiment.


  • paper clip
  • hot glue
  • liquid glue
  • glitters
  • ribbon
  • 1 small piece of paper


  1. Place paperclip on a small piece of paper to work on. Or you can use waxed paper to avoid sticking.
  2. Fill the inner fold of the paperclip with a thin layer of hot glue.
  3. Apply some liquid glue mixed with glitters. Or you can also use glitter glue.
  4. Add some more glitter accessories. Allow to dry.
  5. Cover the glitter layer with hot glue and let dry.
  6. Flip to the other side. Remove the paper and cover with liquid glue.
  7. Do the same procedure as the first side.
  8. Make a tiny bow out of ribbonettes.
  9. Glue onto the paperclip.
  10. Attach clip into the broken zipper.
