Last minute recycled office supply Christmas decorations

I love office and school supplies. I collect vintage supplies and along with new supplies they can be recycled into new and fun decorations.

I created the scissor snowflake simply by wiring the finger holes together. The hinged ruler was the easiest by simply opening it partially to create the star. The star on the right was a bit of a funny challenge idea.

I was given a stash of hanging file folder with the challenge, "maybe you can make something with all of these?"

I spotted the traditional stick star craft project in a magazine and I thought about my stash of hanging file folders.

The stars were easy to make.

I simply removed the metal hanger from the paper folder and overlapped them into the star shape.
I secured the points with a bit of wire.

I glued vintage typewriter keys onto the tips that spelled out PEACE for a final decorative touch.

Happy Holidays everyone!
