5 fun things to use on your projects.




As you know, I'm a huge fan of found objects around the house [though sometimes it might be someone else's house...*LOL*].....they are such fun things to use on your projects. :)  Here are 5 fun things to use on your projects...



Whatcha doing

1. The wooden Japanese toothpick.

I love that the wooden Japanese toothpick is broad enough for me to add stickers to it. :) Add a little ribbon tab and it serves as a nice photo corner embellishment. :)


Hello card 

2. Soda can.

Cut up a soda can and emboss it for a cool, reflective element on your project.


Are you a model tag

3.Tab pulls.

Instead of punching holes for you ribbon, consider using tab pulls as a cool alternative.

4. Bottlecap.

Bottlecaps make such great embellishments. Here I used mine as a photo mat for one of my round photos [I used stickers for the other two photos]. It adds dimension and a little pop. You can also fill it with little beads and buttons for a custom embellishment. :)

7x9 wedding canvas

5. A charm from a keychain.

Consider adding a little heart charm from a keychain as a fun embellishment for your layout. :)

There you have it, 5 fun things to use on your projects. What do you think?

These are so fun! You have such great ideas for all those found items! I love the soda can, bottle cap, and tab pulls especially. How do you attach your tab pulls? Really good adhesive?

Helen Tilbury said...

I think they're all very cool ideas. I think us as internationals are forced to be more creative simply due to the unavailability of huge craft stores and the time and money it costs to import everything - great for the creativity!
