DCRU - Make your own embellishment

Today's Die Cuts R Us Challenge is to...

Create your own
Embellishment

Claudia, sent each of the DCRU Design Team members 4- 3x3 squares of the
The County Fair Collection DP from American Crafts and challenged us to create our own embellishments!
It sure was fun!! I created a flower, a pinwheel and the oval sentiment embellishment.

To make the flower, I simply hand cut a rounded square shape, the distressed and crumpled it, then manipulated it into a flower like shape, added a back for extra dimension and sewed a button on. I used SU! ribbon and a strip of the yellow American Crafts paper as an accent to the ribbon.

The pinwheel is several triangles arranged to look pin-wheelish!!! LOL!! I cut the button looking designs out of one of the pieces of patterned paper and glued them to the triangles. That adorable pink paper that I used for the Pin wheel handle and the Scalloped oval is also American Crafts paper. I love pink and this pink is the positively perfect shade!!!

These 12x12 papers are available now in the Die Cuts R Us store on sale at 40% off!!!
DCRU has a large assortment of Cuttlebug Embossing Folders available for the super price of $3.99.
