Anthropologie Necklace
When I was in 2nd grade we made necklaces out of paperclips.  Imagine my suprise when I was flipping through the Anthropologie catalog and I saw a new spin on it! I tried anthro's version and here it is .....

Paperclips (37 2.5” paperclips)
Colorful paper (I used 4 different colors)

1.       Cut the sheets of paper into strips.  My strips were 1.5 inches long and about an inch wide.
2.       Assemble the paperclips into a grid structure look at mine to get an idea.  I attached my paper after I had connected all my paperclips together.  It may be easier if you do a couple at a time and then add the paper.
3.       To attach the paper simply wrap the paper around the paperclip and secure with glue.
4.       To make the clasp I just bent a paperclip, you can attach clasps or any kind of fasteners.
