Making Embellishments

Susan and I met yesterday for another day of crafty fun!  In our efforts to use up scraps of paper, we decided to make some embellishments.  It is always great to have some handmade ones ready to use.

Susan came prepared with a variety of handmade templates in the shape of clouds.  We traced and hand cut these.  I wonder when Cricut will come out with a cartridge with clouds.

Then we made a variety of flowers and some little flag banners using toothpicks.

Our most favourite flower to make was the pleated flower.  We used Susan's Martha Stewart score board and it was a breeze.  I finally caved and got one for myself!

Here is a tutorial on making these flowers using the board.

We are planning a few more embellishment making days and are planning on doing a giveaway together of some of these goodies.  Susan is even crocheting some of her wonderful little flowers for it!!  So stay tuned in the next few weeks so you can be in on the chance to win!  :)

Happy Scrapping!!  Jen :)
