Who doesn’t love embellishments? Whenever I finish a big project like creating a scrapbook album gift for Mother’s Day or one of my niece’s first year albums I like to take a break from involved projects and just make embellishments for fun and of course to have ready for future projects. For this last week of May I’d like to share some favorite scrappy embellishment tutorials I’ve been following.
Gather those leftover scraps of pretty paper, varied buttons and rhinestones/sequins floating around in your scrapbooking drawer to make some unforgettable scrappy embellishments!
