Default WT151 - Design Staples

Well a stapler may not be a design staple but you know I just can't resist having a little fun with titles for these challenges. Today I'm asking you to pull out your staplers and have a little papercrafting fun. I haven't been using mine as much lately and as I know...almost everyone should have one...I thought it would be a great challenge. So staple some embellishments, some paper, transparencies or simply just accent a design element. Regular office staplers are great but you can also use designer style staples if you happen to own a Fastenator or other such contraption. Have fun with it and be creative! I loved all the fabulous ideas from the paint challenge last week!

Please remember to put WT151 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your work! Remember this is a challenge not a contest. Upload as many samples as you wish for as long as you wish but please use new samples created for this challenge.

Thanks for playing along and have a fabulous day!

staples! YIKES! LOL

Ok, I have to clean my desk off anyway, so maybe I'll find that pesky little stapler and give it a try.

Thanks Julia!

I haven't used staples in awhile on a card. I always get negative feedback from DS (he's 19). But what do guys know?

LOL I agree Melody! What DO they know? My hubby HATES my freestyle stitching and now he doesn't like the buttons I'm using. "when did you ever get a card in the mail with a button on it? " I just go ahead and do my thing.

I'm not real big on staples... But this was a fun challenge and I think that the staples gave my card just what it needed. Here's mine...

Hi everyone! Julia, I love this challenge! I finally got to use my Fastenator! However, I advise everyone to wear shoes while using this tool and NOT to accidently drop the staples on the floor! LOL! OUCH!@%$%$&&^*&^

Here's today's PAINFUL submission:
