Up cycle Paper clips by making fish hooks!

Hi everyone, I had a brain storm the other day and came up with a cute embellishment for the our newest digi "Great Catch" and a paperclip
 Step 1
Bend the end of the paper clip just above the bottom loop to the right at a 90 degree angle.
 Step 2
Now bend the end back at a 45 degree angle leaving a small space.
 Step 3
Move down a little further down and bend the clip end down to form the arrow point.
 Step 4
Bend the final end piece of the clip 90 degrees toward the centre.
Trim any access.
 Step 5
Bend the top of the paper clip completely around to form a loop, wrap around the clip stem and trim access.
 Ta da!!  A Fishhook!
Here's my card with it all together.
