two ideas that come to mind
1) take a sheet of cardboard and a pair of scissors and cut them
2) find paperclips of the appropriate size

That's a great idea. I have a stupid missoni shirt that for some reason has bizarre stays that don't fit in other shirts. Nothing like leaving town with only the missoni stays for my non-missoni shirts.

You misunderstood my reference. Turns out Frisco is near Corsicana. Corsicana is what i was thinking of.

Depends on how lame your sense of "humor" is.

On a more relevant topic, I've used paper clips or the plastic cover of notebooks (cut to size) in a pinch.
