"Snap" them on to hold things together.
Snapping paper clips with pop designs
MIDORI has just released Pin-Clip, lovely snap-on clips available in the shapes of a lady bug, duck, clover, and many more. Use them to bundle a mouse or earphone cord together, fasten the opening of a wrapper bag, and --- you can find many more uses. A single Pin-Clip can keep some 40 pages of a loose leaf notebook together, so students can find these clips helpful too. Their designs make them nice ornaments for your bags and pouches as well.
