Making Embellishments out of your scraps

Hi everyone, today I’m showing you all how I use up some of my scraps of paper that I have laying around. If you’re like me it’s hard to part with those small pieces that are really still good and big enough to use. So what happens to me is I end up with a big bowl of them. Yes I keep them in this decorative bowl on my table easily accessible to grab and use up. 

So I took some of my favorite washi tape and started to cover some of the scrap prices I had 

When you are finished put out some punches or your die cutting machine and punch or cut out some of your favorite shapes. 

For these I used my big shot and some Tim Holtz dies 

And here I used some old creative memories punches that I have. 

I love this idea because now I have all these fun elements ready to be added to my art journal pages or my art cards. You can also use them on a canvas or on a scrapbook page as well. Or even to decorate a hand made card or the outside envelope or even to decorate a gift package. Since it’s almost back to school time kids could use them to decorate their notebooks or folders the possibilities are endless so what are you waiting for grab your scraps and washi tape and have some fun. Thanks for stopping by your comments and likes are always beyond appreciated ❤️ have a fabulous day !!
