The day my Clip It Up Jumbo arrived, I FELL. IN. LOVE. WOW! It was amazing and could hold soooo much stuff! It was even bigger than I expected, which made me super happy! Love at FIRST SIGHT I tell ya! Perfection in a box! My only thought, was that black was not my color.
NOT A PROBLEM! I decided I would alter it!
When I got ready to alter My Clip It Up Jumbo, I first had to decide what “Feeling” I wanted to have for the overall decoration of my scrap room. I am in the very beginning stages of setting it up, and colors have not even been on my mind yet!
Well, I decided I wanted a calm, serene feeling for my own space. It is my get-away…my sanctuary of sorts…so I wanted it to feel relaxing. What relaxes me the most, is sitting out on my back porch in the middle of spring…listening to all the birds chirping, seeing all the new flowers blooming, and looking up into a clear blue sky…free of those “wintery” grey clouds. That was my starting point.
I immediately set to work.
I chose my Krylon spray paint…and painted the base a calming color of blue…to reflect the sky on a clear day. You will want to take the clips off and remove the top ring…this photo is of it all reassembled.
After spraying and allowing it to dry, I took it in to my scrap room and got to work. I decided to use a magnolia vine that I picked up at Hobby Lobby (for about $6) , a bird’s nest ($4), and a bird (2pk $4). Using my hot glue gun to secure the bottom of the vine and the nest in place .
Then, I just wrapped the vine up the post of the Clip_It_Up Jumbo, clipping of the end just below the tri-arm and securing with hot glue. Do not attach the vine to the tri-arm.
Next, I removed my handle from the top, and did the same, placing the “Mama Bird” up top to look over her babies. I wanted to make sure that I could remove my handle, so that I can add my top tier when I get ready to.
Now, all that is left is to assemble and ORGANIZE! (My favorite part!)
I loved how my Clip it Up Jumbo turned out when I altered it to fit the colors/theme of my scrap room and it is soooooo easy to do! When you receive your Clip It Up Organizer, don’t be scared to alter it to fit your own personality or scrap room! You will fall in LOVE with it All OVER Again! I sure did!
