Week Two -- Paper Clips

If you are still working on Week One's challenge, keep it up and don't forget to email your photos and measurements. We'll post ours shortly. As for Week Two, the challenge is: put a handful of paperclips on a table and make something with them.

Don't forget to take a picture and email it to us by next weekend (although for the first few weeks of this, we won't turn any late entries away).

Have fun. Be creative. Think!

And, if you are looking for ideas of other things to do with paperclips, go here or read about these creations or these.

Update: Our solution was not what we expected! First, I tossed a bunch of paperclips on the table.

We planned to make a wire person that might look something like this. But as we opened the paperclips, they all broke. So, we decided to just create a more 2 dimensional picture on the table. We put a piece of white paper underneath so that we could photograph it. Here it is:
