Something I have really enjoyed doing is making my own embellishments.Most of these ideas are universal, switch out the theme to whatever project you are working on. So many ideas can be found on the internet using colouring pages, printables, etc.)
Some of my favourites are
Flair buttons – all you really need is a 1” circle punch (I have a MS scalloped circle punch which works great), a stamped image, scraps of paper, small stickers, the possibilities are endless. Here are a few samples of one I have made.
Paper Piecing – find a printable, colouring page, or pattern of your theme and cut out of cardstock and/or pattern paper to create your embellishment. Again lots of patterns, images of the internet or draw your own pattern(not something I could do though).
One last thing… you can use packaging from items you buy to make patterns like ihave here with this bone tag I have from a purchase from a toy I purchased for my puppy. Use the pattern for many things:
Trace on a piece of card stock or pattern pattern and words or design, journaling, etc.
Trace outlying on paper and stitch the outline to make your own embellishment or do several for a background.
Thanks for looking 🙂
