Cricut and Scraps: Handcrafted Embellishments

This is just one of my boxes of handmade cards right now. Time to sort and package.

Lots of paper, lots of great cards, but lots of scraps. I just... ummm...donated some various size pieces to my daughter who wanted to use some of it for scrap booking and I still have plenty. I've been trying to use up smaller pieces but then sometimes you just have itty bitty scraps and then what?

Handcrafted embellishments from scraps

I ran across some Pinterest pins on making your own embellishments, so I'm just getting started at doing some of that. I thought I'd share my first attempts. These aren't limited to one season, but that's okay, it gives you the idea.

Foam tape, Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue and the Cricut. Punches, stamps, embossing folders, buttons and even some machine stitiching would be great for this project. They're a fun addition to gift wrapping, even a card or two. So go ahead, have some fun. Share some ideas in the comments below if you like.

Take care, have a great rest of the day!
