For the last few weeks, I have being trying to get a hold of these Tartan Oli™ Magnetic Paper Clips. I saw Jen from OrganisedlikeJen use then in her Filofax and I got the "Wanties" yet again. I trawled through the Internet and could only find them in America, it seemed no one in the UK has these. I put a call out to Filofax Facebook Users, to see if they knew of any sellers and it seems these little gadgets, are wanted by lot of other Filofax users.
But then Jane McCourt from Each Shining Hour discovered something very similar in Wilkinson's here in the UK. I am so pleased she described where in the shop she found them because, I went there today and lordy be, they took some searching for! So I treat myself to a couple of packs. The magnets in these are sooooo strong, in fact when I picked up a pack in the shop, I picked up all the packs together, as the magnets were keeping them together as one. £1.85 for six, it's not going to put a hole in your pocket is it!
So here they are in action, I think they look pretty okay. These two are holding a full 2013 Month on 2 page Diary insert together and it's holding together as good as any bulldog clip.
Just to show you how strong they are....I've put a few on the A5 Malden back cover and they are firmly in place here:
I don't think they are as big as the Oli tartan ones, but they still do a good job. This holiday pass is about the same size as a Credit Card, hope this gives you some idea of the actual size.
I'm actually quite pleased with these and thank you to Jane for bringing them to our attention. x
Just want to apologise about the random photo sizes this evening, Blogger would not let me resize any of them for some unknown reason. Hope you still enjoy! x
