Once all the supplies are gathered making these Super Easy Altered Paperclips is a breeze.

ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever is perfect for adding just a little adhesive to the book page. Since the paper is thin and the glue only takes a small amount I don’t have to worry about my paper buckling.

Painting paper is a lot of fun. I like the ability to change the paper to match my project by just adding craft paint.

For the past year, I have stopped buying flowers in color. I only purchase white or natural colored flowers. The reason is I already have a stash of colors that I don’t use because these don’t match my other colors. So I found that if I use white or natural flowers I can change those to any color Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I would like.

Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint has been one of my favorite products to use to add a little sparkle. It doesn’t take much and looks so pretty.

The Embellie Gellie helps with placing the rhinestones just where I want them to be on the flowers. Sure keeps me from dropping a bunch of rhinestones.

Have you tried your hand at making Altered Paper Clips? These make a great gift to add to a greeting card. Could even be the focal point on a greeting card. When they get the card they can remove the clip and use where ever they like.

For now, I think I’ll keep one in my Happy Planner to help mark my place and I might be persuaded to give the others a new home. 😉

Planner Clip Swap with Vanessa Garcia of Savvy Planners

Sharing the Planner Clip Swap with Vanessa Garcia of Savvy Planners group on Facebook. She organized a planner clip swap and I’m sharing what I got from her. She made lots of cute planner clips!

These clips don’t have to be used in a planner, these can be used as bookmarks or to hold papers together. This time these were made for Planners. 🙂

Here is a video of my opening up the Planner Clip Swap with Vanessa Garcia of Savvy Planners.

Didn’t she do an awesome job on these little planner clips? I think these are super cute and I’m glad I got to swap with her.

Since we were swapping I did make videos of a few of the clips I sent to her.

This is the Happy Mail & Poodles of Fun Altered Paperclip I made featuring a Poodle! I think this turned out super cute!

The Altered Paper clip with Lawn Fawn Unicorn will publish on March 19th so be on the look out for my post featuring this clip.

Another Planner clip I made is with Brutus Monroe stamps and Chameleon Pens, You are Sharp Altered Paperclip.

There will also be a video for a Sugar Skull Planner clip featuring stamps from Fleurette Bloom Designs and Chameleon Pens.

Making these planner clips was super fun and easy. I like how small these are and can be added to a greeting card.

Do you love planners? Then head over to the Savvy Planners Facebook group and join in the fun. So many creative ladies there that love to share.

What kind of planner clips would you make? Do you have a favorite design that you like? I love the little Leprechaun clip He has so much character! Then I think the second favorite would be the glitter coffee cup! Because I love glitter! The bow is super cute and I think I want to make some of those.
