Handmade Embellishments April 15, 2016

Lately, I’ve been wanting to stretch my wings a little bit.  I’ve been working on some of the Mixed Media Morsels (here‘s a link to the first video), making mini albums, and using different mediums.  Well, another thing I have never really done is to try creating making my own embellishments.  Stacy (Pink Poodle Crafts) has an excellent blog post here as well as a YouTube channel that is just jam packed with creative ideas.

Anyhow, here is what I created using mostly scraps from my stash.

I absolutely love how these came out – and I thank Stacy for information on the technique.  I think these embellishments are going to be fantastic to use on cards or mixed media projects, and I shopped my stash to create them.  I also used some punches that I haven’t gotten out in quite a while – another bonus!  I did use a square punch to cut the tails because they generally came out much more even than when I tried to use a pair of scissors to cut them, and I also used a paper trimmer to make my strips.  I tried using scissors and (again) I found that the uneven edges just bothered me too much.
