Thank you all for your ideas and opinions so far. I still don't feel satisfied with what I've done though, so I'm exploring a iti of a new direction and would love to know what you think!

Oh love these changes! I'm gonna go with C - i think it stands out the best. the Kraft would certainly work for an alternate colorway though.

Thinking about background, font and the spread of the paperclips - your thoughts are much appreciated!

Was torn between B or C, but chose B. I thought that the thickness of the script in C was competing a bit with the clips, but maybe that's just me. ;) Also, is it possible to connect the 's' in B?

I chose B. I think the white background shows off your paper clips s bit more.

I'm really torn, but I think I like B the best. D also stands out to me.

yup I do love A - though if you went with this script I might add a small stroke to the type just so it doesn't get swallowed up so much by the kraft texture.

Great concept! I like the clean look of B best... the font in D might work nicely with it too! :)

I really like A, but I would make the "tis the season" font the same red as in the paper clip. It looks a little orange to me! I might also consider making each individual paper clip a little smaller so that the words at the bottom don't feel crowded. Such a cute idea!!
