The residents of Planet Internet have long since established the crafty value of a pair of shutters. I have only one new point to add, but I think it’s a pretty good one. In a word, paper clips.
And yes, you might wish to point out to me that that’s two words, but it’s one good idea – and I can say that without being immodest because even though I’m the one who thought of paper clips, my husband is the one who sorted out how to attach them. Good job, husband!
As he demonstrated to me, paper clips can be slipped through the small metal rings that attach the tilt rod to the louvers.
Slipping paperclips through these metal rings creates far more display space than I have seen on other shutter projects, which is good, because I always want to display a lot of mail art.
Once you have the paperclips in place, you have complete and total flexibility to display any size of mail art, in any orientation.
For my shutters, I decided to create a “Saints and Sinners” display.
