Intro: Make a Nice and Cheap Paperclip Top

This instructable shows how to make a top with a paperclip easy to make and really cheap

Step 1: Materials

This is my first instructable so i hope you like it

The materials:
1 big paperclip (I strongly recomend use colred ones they look nicer)

Tools:
1 permanent marker or sharpie
Long nose pliers
Something to make the paperclip round (i used a wide and broad marker)

Step 2: "Unroll " the Paper Clip

make the paperclip as flat as possible

Step 3: Center the Clip in the "rounding Thing"

hold by the center and with one of your fingers th paperclip in the thing you chose to make it round

Step 4: Bend It in a U-shape

The ends of the paperclip MUST be equal

Step 5: Twist It Until It Forms a Cricle

They will form a circle Or maybe A ohm sign

hold it until the next step

Step 6: Mark the Center

use the Permanent marker for this step

Step 7: Hold With the Pliers the Point You Marked in the Last Step

The images are blurry , but you can see the pliers holding the marked point

Step 8: Now Bed the Extra Part to Thecenter of Paperclip

using other pair of pliers or your fingers

Step 9: Twist the Ends of the Paperclip

twist the down part up And the up part down

Step 10: Bend the Ends of the Clip Up and Down So Both Will Form a "L" Shape

use the pliers for this step

Step 11: Congratulations

    this is a cool instructable but your pictures are blurry which means i can't get the full idea of how the paperclips are to look like. i tried just now to make the top and it came out all messed up cause i don't know exactly what to do. it's a bit confusing. can you post clearer pictures?
