4 Uses for Spare Paper Clips

Open shrink-wrapped DVDs
Opening shrink-wrap, especially on DVDs, can be a test of skill and patience! Save your fingernails and teeth from destruction. Twist out the end of a paper clip and slice the wrap. To prevent scratches, slip the clip under the folded section of wrap and lift up.

Use as hooks for hanging
Paper clips make great impromptu hooks. Making a hanging ceramic plaque? Insert a large, sturdy paper clip on the back before the clay hardens.

Hold the end of transparent tape
Got a roll of transparent tape without a dispenser? Don’t drive yourself nuts trying to locate and lift the end of the tape. Stick a paper clip under the end the next time you use the roll.

Make a bookmark
Paper clips make great bookmarks because they don’t fall out. A piece of ribbon or colorful string attached to the clip will make it even easier to use and find.
