If you are one of the many lucky people who spend their days within the walls of a small cloth covered box then you have liked dreamed of adding a little something to remind you of the existence of rest of the world.

These quick DIY Cubicle Clips are just the thing. They cost like $0.05 to make, and they are super useful, especially if the walls of your cube are "hard" (i.e. you can't stick a push pin in them). If yours are "soft" then these will still be useful for items that you don't want to poke a hole in ,like photos.

To begin.......

You will need:

1 - spring loaded clothes pin - wooden or plastic
1 - 3" piece of wire  - a straightened paper clip will do
any needle nose pliers
belt sander (optional - only used to make the wire pointy on the ends)

Let's get down to it. This will only take you like 2 minutes.

Step 1: Cut the wire to length and sharpen

Ok, I'll keep this brief.

Here we will use the cutter part of the needle nose pliers to cut a piece of wire to about 3" length.

Then, if you have access to a belt sander or grinder, you can sharpen then ends to make them easier to poke thru the weave of your cubicle wall fabric. It's not absolutely necessary, so if you don't have a belt sander or anything, just keep going, it's no big deal. Leave the ends as cut.
