It’s easy to make your own scrapbook embellishments

Sometimes it just seems impossible to find an embellishment that matches your scrapbook page theme. It’s not the right color, the right size or maybe you can’t find anything that looks “just right”. In that case, it may be easier just to make your own.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to use the acrylic or rubber stamps you already have in your collection. simply stamp your image and then cut it out. After it’s cut out, simply add to it with brads, clips, acrylic gems, add color with pens and so on. A really neat thing to do especially with  butterfly stamps or flower stamps is to make them more 3-D. For a butterfly, simply fold it’s wings up and only adhere the  body to the page. For flowers, simply stack them, add a brad in the center and use a pencil or quilling tool to curl the petals up for a more realistic look.  Happy embellishing!
