I made a sample of what is probably the easiest altering there is to do... the only difficult part is finding these really cool paper clips so you can alter them!!!
I used various self-adhesive tapes from Heidi Swapp that I have had since forever. Fold them over the end of the paper clip, sticking it against itself then cut to size. I added a small "V" to give it some added style.
You could easily substitute this tape with washi tape as it is now so readily accessible.
