Beautiful Plants For Your Interior


This is about how I make the little secrets that go inside my handmade glimmer books inspired by Ren from Grunge Granny.

I wanted to add the cute secret surprises to the glimmer books! This is a top view of my glimmer books!

This is a little side view sneak peek of the glimmer books!

I did make a few of these tags live on Facebook! I was not feeling well that day. I definitely wanted to make more! These are a few of the items I used! I will add a list of things later on in this blog post!

I did not have any Bible verses handy to use during my live. I knew I wanted to try to use some for these tags!

I used a paper punch to punch these out of some cardstock. 

This is my first one today! I love how it turned out! It was super simple and super cute! I ripped up some scrapbook paper. I used a flower paper punch on some scrapbook paper. I attached them with washi tape. (Hidden under the flower is some scotch tape.)

This is my second one! I also used washi tape and scrapbook paper. I used a sharpie pen to draw my candlestick to represent a lamp. I thought “A candle emits light like a lamp. I did my best to draw a candle. I know I can’t quite draw a lamp yet” It turned out cute!

These two are my mini tags! They are adorable! I used that ultra thin paper with the stamps on it to do the top one. They are held on with washi tape. The second one says “wild and free” I liked the butterfly on the scrapbook paper so I wanted to be sure to show it off!

What you need:

Tags (or you can print one out or draw it and cut it out! I used a paper punch from Hobby Lobby.)
