That left two alternatives - denial or celebration. Having decided on the latter, Imade this little accordion book in which to display (some of) the collection. I love this style of book. Its super easy to make, but it sits so nicely that the whole contents can be displayed at once, or you can turn the pages like a regular book. Better still it packs away easily for storage. I used a fairly stiff card for the "pages" and covered some slightly higher and wider panels for the back and front, securing some ribbon under to tie it closed.
I was sure that the paperclip comment was a quote, and upon consulting Dr Google was delighted to find that it came from Sesame Street (Ernie to Bert, even although Ernie had his own collection!)
Better still, there was a whole song!!! This solved the problem of what to write on the back - and I liked the sentiment - its easy to find beauty in a sunset or panoramic landscape - sometimes you just have to try a little harder to see it things like.........PAPERCLIPS!!!
