PHOTO HUNTERS: PRACTICAL

photohunters

This week’s theme is on PRACTICAL,
I was looking around the house for something that can be PRACTICAL,
and I found these…PAPER CLIPS!
I find that they are the most PRACTICAL thing in our daily lives.
There are so many ways we can use a paper clip.

PRACTICAL01

This is one of the PRACTICAL ways I use paper clips.
I made them into HEART SHAPES and turned them into BOOKMARKS!

PRACTICAL02

This is another of the PRACTICAL ways I use paper clips.
I used them as my DVDROM EJECTOR when my disc got stuck!

PRACTICAL03

In fact, there are still many other ways such as unclogging, cleaning, scraping any small items, ornaments hangers, lock-picking, paper clip chain games for kids, keeping fabrics together when sewing, mixing adhesive glues, resetting certain small electronics gadgets, sealing up a pack of chips packet, etc.
Don’t you think PAPER CLIPS are so PRACTICAL in our lives?
