I was challenged this week to make something with a stapler. I chose to take an ordinary stapler and make it pretty! Here is my starting point.
First I taped over all the metal parts that I didn't want to paint. If you know how to take a stapler apart, be my guest.
Next, I spray painted the entire thing sky blue. I love this shade of spray paint; it looks just gorgeous.
I added a few design details. I used a blue paint pen to outline all the edges and write "keep it together." Everyone loves a good stapler pun, right?
Finally I removed the tape and that was that! It's more colorful and artsy now.
