This week's tip offers a way to get some bang for your buck when it comes to embellishments.
As crafters,one of the fundamental supplies on hand is cardstock.
Why not use it to the best of its' ability?
One of the things you can do is cut your 12x12 or 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of cardstock into strips and then apply glossy accents or paper glaze over the complete surface for some dimension, epoxy effect & substance.
You can use them as borders and paper ribbons on your layouts & cardmaking projects.
It makes for easy coordination with your projects as well b/c you can use paper from the same line. Out of one 12x12 you can get many strips depending on the size you cut them. You can embellish them further with things like glitter, bling, flock & flowers. You can even use your border punches on these strips making them even more intricate & stylish.
You already use punches with your papers and that too stretches the mileage on your paper stash & your tools.
Why not put that multi-faceted paper to work for you even more?
I love it when I can recycle, repurpose, reuse!
Just another idea of what you can do with what you may already have in your paper crafting arsenal.
Paper is one of the most inexpensive ways to accomplish embellishing on your projects. The trick is to think out of the box on how you can use it.
I hope this tip helps spark more ideas.
