Challenge #39: Wired Up!

Hi!  It's Kristy here with our first challenge of September.  But before I get to that, I need to take care of a little sad news for The Paper Girls.  Judy and Sheryl have decided to step down as Paper Girls.  We will miss you greatly here on our page, but we hope you will still participate in a few challenges!  You will always be Paper Girls to us!!!
Moving on to the Challenge #39 - Wired Up! For this challenge, we want to see you use wire in fun and different ways.  Wire can be anything from jewelry wire, paper clips, even staples.  As you can see, we have all used wire very different ways on our projects!
Here are a couple layouts I have made using wire:

I used thin gauge wire to add a little interest on this page.  I didn't even bother unwinding the wire from the packaging!

On this layout, I use a jig to shape the title with heavier gauge wire.

The Other Paper Girls made some great projects that showcase wire in multiple ways:

Charity twisted wire into fun loops to add accents to her card.

Heather's hanger paper clip is a perfect resting spot for this dress.

Amber wound wire behind her leaves and made her own heart paper clip. Wow!

Erica used a shaped paper clip and also added some fun gold twist ties to accent her embellishment.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this wire challenge. You have until 11:59 MDT on September 14th to link up your project to be entered into this drawing.

As always, there will be a great prize for our lucky winner!  

And now......

The winner of Challenge #38 is entry #18 - Leeann!  Please e-mail us at papergirlschallengeblog@gmail.comwith your info and we will get your prize sent out.
