DIY Party Paperclip Flags For Planners And Notes

DIY Paperclip Flags for planners and notesToday’s DIY idea is pretty darn simple.

And I think that’s kind of what makes it special. You can create beautiful things without breaking a leg. It’s really about getting creative with what you have to work with.

I wanted to create a pretty washi tape paperclip flags post but thought up this one after using curling ribbon for a unicorn project I was working on that same day.

It’s lovely what happens when you merge two ideas together, you come up with another awesome idea!

And thus, the ‘party’ paperclip flags were born. Below I’ll show you how to put them together (Psst, it takes like 5 little minutes!)

DIY Paperclip Flags

First you want to make sure you gather all your supplies so you can comfortably make them in one go.

I’m often guilty of not gathering everything I need and I end up having to get up like five times to complete a project. Not good.

But I digress. Here’s what you’ll need:


  • Curling ribbon in a lot of different colors (the dollar store is perfect for this)
  • Scissors
  • Your preferred paperclips

  1. You’ll want to cut out three pieces of six inch curling ribbon for each paperclip
  2. Tie one piece of ribbon to the top end of the paperclip and curl with your scissors
  3. Tie the second piece of curling ribbon on top of the first one and repeat the process, add the third piece and repeat
  4. Now you’re left with a fun paperclip flag you can use for your bullet journals, planners, and any stray notes you have flying around!
