Off the Shuttle: Tatted Bird Paperclip Bookmarks

I've been making bookmarks for the 2014 NCRL Spring Lace Day and got carried away. After I finished the batch for the event's goody bags, I made the ones below to give out over the holidays. Sometimes having an obsessive personality is useful when one has to make a lot of duplicates.

The pattern is Sharren Sarver Morgan's. I  omitted the middle tail feather called for in the pattern on my birds. It was less fiddly for me to skip it and, really, it's not a noticeable omission. The thread is Lizbeth size 20 in Christmas Delight #116. Jumbo paper clips are from Staples.
