That's a cute idea. Now to do this while the boss isn't looking! LOL. Hmmmm I can see using all different sizes of paper clips and different colors. Maybe even turn one into a pendant or other piece of jewelry.... just add a chain or a pin back.

These would be good to put on the walls and they can hold pictures!
