Embellishments for Paper Crafts: Ideas, Tips & Techniques

By Leslie Conron Carola and Pam Klassen

cover image Add dazzling special effects to your scrapbook albums, cards, and other paper craft projects. We have gathered projects from paper crafters across the country and beyond to include in Embellishments for Paper Crafts: Ideas, Tips & Techniques. Projects include ingenious gift wrap, imaginative scrapbooks, and inventive cards. In one project, a meadow of tiny quilled flowers tumbles out of a grand, carved ostrich egg. Paper crafting has reached new heights. We will stretch your imagination and creativity. The idea is to add not only texture and dimension, but a little extra spice to your scrapbook pages or cards or giftwrap. See beyond the individual components to their possibilities.

Look at our giftwrap created with rubber stamping, ink, and bird feathers. Or the gift paper with snaps. And the CD holder decorated with fabulous natural items—a shell, sand dollar, dried leaves, hemp—to hold cherished memories of a visit with an old friend. Or the double coin holders on twill tape, spilling out of a small box, with exquisite photos of a joyous toddler. These are treasures.

Embellishments for Paper Crafts offers extraordinary projects from dedicated crafters to give you a look at the explosion of paper crafts and imaginative embellishments. The book is organized around embellishing materials: items from the natural world (leaves, flowers, seashells, pebbles, sea glass), paper (corrugated, crimped, handmade, vellum), fabric (ribbon, fibers, yarn, thread, lace, rickrack), glass and plastic (buttons, beads, glitter, geometric shapes), and metal (grommets, brads, eyelets, tags, charms, wire). Projects range from greeting cards to invitations, from Christmas ornaments to giftwrap, from scrapbook pages to memory books, boxes, bags, and decorative objects. The list keeps growing. Jump on the crafting train and find that your creativity is brimming. And you will have fun!
