Paper clips!

Submitted by Tom on 10/27/05 at 10:50 PM. ( ) 64.12.116.200

Okay this may seam silly but I can't tell you much time I waste untangling paper clips! It's frustrating. Does anyone out there have a unique way of organizing, storing etc. paper clips so they don't get tangled?
Thanks

If your using them for fin carding, I have switched to clothes pins. Alot easier to organize.


That would be nice

Me thinks that someone is getting into my paper clips, extenson cords, and ropes. They're always tangled.

The best thing that I have done for the clips is to place them back on the cards when I put the cards up that way they are there for the next use. I have only done about 20-30 fish so far but after 2 I realized that there had to be a better way. If one is to bad out of shape I will replace it then rather than when i may need it.

After going to Cecils I now place the cards in a species/size marked envelop instead of a box for even easier searching for that right size.


Glad to hear you learned something here Joey

You helped me more then you will ever know, the only thing that I am not really happy about is that horizonal(sp) strip on my large mouth. I would like to figure out how to get that to look more realistic instead of just looking painted on the fish. I guess it takes time and lots of practice. really Thank you for where you got me.

Just keep practicing and looking at reference Joey
