Step by Step paper crafting tutorials

Fleur Smith, Scrapbook Nerd Design Team 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.

Layered Flowers

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.

6x61

First punch the 2 different sizes from different patterned paper, using two different sizes of the scalloped punch.

6x6pp2

Using scissors, cut in from each scallop slightly (not all the way into the middle).

6x6pp3

Once all your cuts are made, layer the two layers together .

6x6pp4

Add a fun embellishment in the middle – I used a button and badge from the same collection.

Ice Cream Cone

My last project is perfect for summer layouts. An Ice cream cone.

6x64

Cut three scallop cirlces from different patterned paper and a triangle shape from a patterned paper (this will be the cone)

6x6pp14

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.

YUM!
