Today’s creations are somewhat simplistic in design,
but stylish and a definite must have in your crafting armoury. Yes we all need a wide variety of embellishments,
whether it be tags or toppers, sentiments or flowers. Us crafters need to have a
crafty stash of these essentials.
I often browse the internet looking at such products, then look at the price tag, and to be brutally honest….
I can make my own for a lot less money, and at least that way, I get the enjoyment out of creating them myself.
Another good thing about making your own embellishments, is that you can use up
you scraps. YES! Get out that bit box that I know you are all hoarding, and get creative.
Use dies and punches, that 3 inch piece of trim that you kept hold of,
those pieces of ribbon that were once attached to the inside of your pj’s!
Get it all out on you desk, have a good rummage and see what you can put together:))
I used some corrugated packaging that I purchased from Poundland, many moons ago,
the doily that can be seen is a die from Dreamees, all the images are from my stamp stash, and all the other
bits and pieces are from my stash, ie-: ribbon and lace offcuts, sequins and pearls, handmade flowers.
Go ahead see what you can create :))
