Charming DIY by Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose

I am happy to present you Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose - 
Thank you Stephanie for taking time to write a guest post with this charming & pretty DIY tutorial!

I am smitten by Stephanie's creativity and her positive view on life and living - her mild, cheerful spirit shines through her blog posts and the social blog events, she arranges. 

Be inspired by my special blogging friend Stephanie by popping over to The Enchanting Rose!

A cheery good day to you!
My name is Stephanie and I blog over at
My little place consists of crafts, sewing, recipes, hymns, tea cups, 
and sweet encouragement from the Bible.
It is a great honor to be posting on Nina's blog today.
Nina is a dear blogging friend of mine and she is someone I have come to admire.
Her photography skills leave me speechless and begging for more
and the Biblical encouragement she shares always leaves me refreshed and renewed.

I am looking forward to sharing with you a simple craft that all of us can do :)

I had a few binder clips hanging around and I must admit that I've had these for at least 10 years 
and have never used them - pretty sad that they have sat in a drawer for that long.
I thought instead of holding papers together,
they would be perfect for holding little cards with Scripture written on them.

I like having verses out in my home where I can constantly see God's Words
so this seemed like the perfect solution for the long-forgotten paper clips.
They would also work for holding pictures, recipe cards, etc. . .

Items Needed:
binder clips
Washi tape or fabric tape
embellishments - pearls, rhinestones, etc

Apply a piece of Washi or fabric tape to the binder clip
and then trim the edges.
Fold the excess tape onto the bottom.

Add the desired embellishments for pretty decoration.

Then, write out Scripture verses or encouraging quotes onto some lovely paper
and voila! You're all done :)

Scatter the Scripture around the home or office space
for blessed encouragement throughout the day.

My heartfelt thanks to sweet Nina for allowing me to share on her delightful blog.
Many blessings to you, lovely lady.

I always enjoy meeting new people so feel free to drop by

  7. Stephanie, you amaze me time after time!! These are absolutely adorable! They remind me of little purses. I am going to pick some of those up today while I'm out and will sure be making some of these.
