Tuesday Tutorial with Emma

Hi everyone!  Emma here to share a super easy tutorial for making your own embellishments!

This month's kits come with some super cut die-cuts, stickers and papers that are perfect for grouping together to make your own dimensional embellishments.  Some times when I don't have alot of time to put a page together I'll sit down and make these - gives me my crafty fix without involving a heap of time :)

 The beauty about making these is there are no rules and you're really only limited by your imagination and the amount of goodies you have onhand to use ;)

1 - First up you'll need some tools - I grabbed my punches, scissors and mini attacher.  Plus you'll need some double-sided tape and foam dots (to add some dimension!).

2 - Then you need to get all those bits and pieces you want to use - I've used some goodies from both the Main and Add-on kits :)

3 - Then pick your favourite papers and start punching and cutting shapes.  I went with circles (used punches) and cut banner shapes with my scissors.

4 - Now this is the fun part - rifle through all your goodies to find things that you love.  I like to group things together at this point.

5 - Start layering!   I don't stick anything down at this point so if I end up not liking something I can  easily take it away.  The adhesive pieces are a little tricky but I tend to just stick those to a clear ruler then lay that on top to see how it looks.

6 - Stick it all together!  Use that tape, staplers, sewing machine or whatever else takes your fancy to keep it all grouped together :)

Super easy right?!

I like leave these sitting in a bowl on my desk so when I'm making a page and need something a little extra, they're ready to go!

And because I still have a few of these left - if you would like a little happy mail with a few embellishments ready to go, just leave a comment below and I'll pick a random winner on Friday and send some of these your way!

Thanks, Em xo
