And here is how I made the slides:
1. First I gathered supplies. I needed a circle (mine was a 3" circle), coordinating scraps, a 1" square punch - or you could hand cut them, a rectangle and oval hand punch, and a 1" circle punch.
2. Next, I place a small mark on the top, bottom, left, and right to line things up. I used my quilting mat that I work on for that but a ruler would work just fine,
3. Then I glued a 1" square next to each mark. You will need 12 squares in total for a 3" circle.
4. I then glued 2 squares in between each of my marked squares and I trimmed an old paper flower and punched a coordinating 1" circle and glued them in the center.
5. And finally, I erased the marks and punched 4 rectangles and just nipped the edges in between each square with the oval punch to create the round marks.
Here is another layout that I created recently with a handmade embellishment. I found the flower tutorial on Pintrest and couldn't resist making a smaller version. I also trimmed the outside edge to make a more delicate flower when I was finished.
So share with us your favorite handmade embellishment. Link back to your blog if possible and we will have a collection of amazing inspiration. Also, I will again send out a small RAK for the random drawing for anyone who enters. Remember you can link up to five projects, cards, or layouts! Last week's winner was Jan!
