Oh boy! Who needs to buy store made embellishments? These will be just the addition to greeting cards, journal pages, scrapbook layouts or mixed media projects! That's what I love about handcrafting materials we can make them to fit our specific needs and/or desires! With four children I always have healthy cereal boxes that I usually add to the recycling bin and now I can try making a stash of these to add to my paper projects!
