what you need:
- Colored paper
- Colorful paperclips
- Pen or pencil
Write a note onto your paper – maybe an encouragement, a silly joke, or a riddle!
Fold your notes into quarters.
Slide colorful paperclips onto the edges of the folded note so that they look like the profile of a face – attach the eye on the top of the folded note and the nose and mouth paperclips on the side. The paperclips help the note stay securely folded but of course add a silly touch to your note too!
