In this economy who doesn’t want to save a few dollars for a rainy day. This post will give you some examples to do just that and get your creativity mojo flowing. Pattern paper is the least expensive product we buy as scrapbookers. Why not take the paper you have and make a few embellishments out of it. By digging into our stash pulling out a little glitter, some adhesive, and your favorite piece of paper we can create a great design on a shoestring. Hand cutting patterns out of pre-printed paper eliminates the need to buy some of the more expensive pre-made embellishments.
For this layout I simply hand cut out several flower, added a little glitter and then layered them. It adds great dimension and it is a fun and easy embellishment.
Here is a close up.
Here is an easy way to make a flower embellishment. Simply cut out several circles of various sizes, distress and ink the edges then layer them adding a brad at the center.
The finished product.
This adorable and totally unique project by Susan Dupre is so clever. She created the perfect fall napkin holder by cutting an acorn from pattern paper. Brilliant idea!
