Step 1: Align Two Pieces of Paper Together
Align both your pieces neatly like you would with a stapler. Have the corner you want to staple on the top-left.
Step 2: Find the Fold Point and Fold the Corner
Find the "fold point" approximately 1 inch from the top and left of the paper. Take the top-left corner of your paper stack and fold it backwards over the fold point. Crease tightly.
Step 3: Tear Your Paperclip
Tear two 1/2 inch long openings approximately 1/2 an inch apart on your folded corner. Make sure the openings are parallel.
Step 4: Fold Your Paperclip
Fold the small flap between both the tears back behind your paper and crease tightly.
Step 5: Proudly Hand in Your Ecofriendly Paper!
Congratulations! Now you've done your part to help save the environment as well as made a cool alternative to using a staple.
Make sure you don't pull hard or the clip will come loose.
I hope you enjoyed this instructable!
