DIY Embellishments by Jennie Garcia 11


Happy Friday Everyone! Today I have a solution to your scraps and unused tools! DIY Embellishments! I made all of these in one hour! Keep reading to see how easy it was! Handmade EmbellishmentsHere are a few things you need: Tombow Adhesives of course, those 6×6 Cute Paper Pads you’ve been hoarding forever, cardstock, Punches of different sizes and shapes, dies, inks and of course your giant pile of paper scraps. There are other miscellaneous things you might already have like: buttons, enamel dots, washi tape (all 200 rolls, if you are like me), vellum, cork, word stickers and if you like sewing paper throw some sewing in there too! Handmade Embellishments1 I would call these ones, the basics. Just punch out  few circles and scalloped punches and start layering! I love texture so anything embossed like this Core’dinations Cardstock, Corrugated Paper from Fancy Pants Designs or Cork from DCWV it’s awesome! Handmade Embellishments2 If you look at the embellishments on the top I layered this tiny Epiphany Crafts Circles with a button and it looked a store bought embellishment! To glue it to the button I used the Tombow Xtreme AdhesiveHandmade Embellishments3 To have your embellishments ready to stick in your project peel only one side of the Tombow Adhesive DotsHandmade Embellishments4 Stack the same punch shape a few times and sew in the middle for some awesome dimensional embellishments. You can add a few extra things too! Handmade Embellishments6 To glue vellum and cork I always use the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive.Handmade Embellishments7 Another idea is stamping on cork and then using a one inch circle punch!Handmade Embellishments8 Try it on vellum too and throw some colors! I glued the vellum circle on the white paper using the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive! This runner is clear so it won’t show through the vellum! Handmade Embellishments9
