Making Handmade Embellishments
For this week’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make some handmade embellishments that you can use on your next project. It doesn’t take much to make your own embellishments and it’s even easier with the 6×6 paper pads. For all these embellishments I used the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer 6×6 pad and 2 sizes of scallop punches.
First up flowers. There are a few different ways to make some fun flower embellishments and I will show you two ways. For the first flower I used 2 different size scallop punches.
First punch the 2 different sizes from different patterned paper, using two different sizes of the scalloped punch.
Using scissors, cut in from each scallop slightly (not all the way into the middle).
Once all your cuts are made, layer the two layers together .
Add a fun embellishment in the middle – I used a button and badge from the same collection.
For the second flower punch four scalloped circles from the same patterned paper, using one size of the scalloped circle punch.
Fold the circles in half.
Layer the half circles on top of each other as shown gluing as you go.
Finish it off with a fun embellishment in the middle.
My third project is a fun dress made from one large scalloped punch.
Punch from patterned paper.
Cut as shown (top has 4 scallops bottom has 8-9 scallops.
Layer the leftover pieces on the bottom to make it more dimensional.
Add a fun embellishment around the waist – I used the bows from Crate Paper
Ice Cream Cone
My last project is perfect for summer layouts. An Ice cream cone.
Cut three scallop cirlces from different patterned paper and a triangle shape from a patterned paper (this will be the cone)
Fold the scallop circles in half and layer them on top of each other to make the scoops then add them to the top of the triangle cone.
If you would like to give these a try, we would love to see your finished projects. Share them with us on or forums and in our gallery.
