Butterfly hairclip claws to hold twigs in place while glue dries

Butterfly hair clips are the perfect little claws to help you hold tiny items in place while you wait for glue to dry

Clip out the inside pins from small butterfly hair clips to create small claws to help you hold tiny objects in place while you wait for glue to dry

I also claw the objects just the way I need them and then glue.

Slip twigs or wire in between the claws to be held upright

I use these bright glittered pink claws so that they really stand out and I wont accidentally forget one in the design. I also have a few brown, green and sap green claws for designs where I want to leave the claws as support. These butterfly claws are also great to support creeping plants and orchid flower spikes

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
