How to Make your own scrapbook embellishments.

When I first start scrapbooking, I bought all kinds of embellishments. With bins full of every kind of embellishment you can thinking of I needed a group of trees. That’s when I started to make my own scrapbook embellishments. Within the year, I was making all of my own embellishments and loved the look. Today I am going to show you some of my techniques.  Let’s start with the easiest ones.

This is the Sweetest Time Bundle. The die is 6″ long, making it easy to create the 12″ border you need to scrapbook. Not to mention the dies give you other embellishment you can you to accent your pages. Like candy canes, used here cut out of designer series paper.  I stack them 3 high with dimensional between each layer. I also to be sure that the top one is sturdy, so I add white cards stock under it. Then I enjoy cutting out other candy canes from the dies, to put all around my layout. Quick easy and haves you all sorts of money. 

That’s not all you can make with this bundle. Remember it also has a 6″ holly die. Again you can cut it twice to create the perfect 12″ border.
