DIY Embellishments - Use Your Stash!

Happy Friday! I'm popping in today to share a bunch of pretty tags and embellishments I created from bits and pieces from my stash! We all have those little bits of pretty papers and left over pieces of goodies - well I say, "Let's use them!" I sat down one day and grabbed a bunch of pretty things that I was just about to part with and decided to create some DIY embellishments.

I gathered some tags, diecut shapes, stamps and patterned papers and added some Distress Inks and gems to create these layered tags.

A few sequins, flowers and twine finished them off!

These would look great layered on a scrapbook page, card or tucked into some Happy Mail.

These labels worked great as a background to layer some diecuts and stamps on!

 I love how these one layer tags turned out - using some mini CTMH stamps and inking around the edges.

Some basic coloured pencils shaded in the images and they were ready!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll try grabbing some of those pretty supplies you have in your stash that you might not otherwise use. If you need more inspiration, try looking on YouTube for DIY scrapbook embellishments - there is so much amazing inspiration! Wishing you a fantastic start to your weekend :)
