Today I wanted to show you a little trick for using all of something...even what you think might be trash. I got this Journaling Pad from Michaels. It is from their Recollections line. I pulled all of the cards out and stored them with my other project life cards.
I was getting ready to throw the leftover stuff away and I thought..."What can I do with this?". I hate throwing stuff away and thought this was a great opportunity for me to make some embellishments (mostly to use for my project life pages). So here is a quick tutorial of what I did.
I pulled out the leftover paper from the spine of the book. I ended up throwing the front and back flap away, but looking back, I could have probably used the back chipboard piece for something else (next time).
I cut off the circle and trimmed off the perforated edge of the paper that was left after pulling the cards out of the pad.
Here is what I ended up throwing away.
I cut notches in the end of each.
Here is a group of what they look like. Fun (sort of free) embellishments.
Hope you found this helpful. See you guys next time.
