Reinvented Embellishments


After assembling my kits each month, I always have some tiny little scraps or pieces left over from my Embellishment pack.  These precious pieces of fibers, little jewels, brads or buttons, find their way to a bag for safe keeping.  Here I will share tips on bringing them out of storage and back onto your pages, projects and cards.

1. Choose scraps from your Picnic kit and Gelli Arts prints.  Check out this blog post on how to create these unique prints.

I used the mask strips left over from the Torn Paper Technique.
2. Punch flowers from these Gelli prints and cut leaf shapes and tendrils from dark green Picnic paper.





3. Create centers for your flowers. Punch tiny daisies from dark blue Picnic paper and add self-stick gem to center. Stack with larger daisies to form flower cluster.


4. Tie bows with baker's twine and attach to the back of the flower/leaf/tendril clusters with adhesive. I work with hot glue as it dries very quickly.




5. Attach your reinvented embellishments onto your paper crafting projects!




Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful week!

Julie

  2. These are wonderful Julie. Since I am new to my gelli plate, I have some sheets that I don't think are good enough to be the background on a card, but punching them into flowers or other shapes could be perfect. Thanks for a great idea.

  12. Julie, you are such an inspiration. I think I need to get more acrylic paint in colors that match the kit colors and play some more with my gelli plate. These flowers and panels you've created are just amazing.
