Once you've got your paper and pictures organized, you might think you're finished with your scrapbook page. Adding scrapbooking embellishments
to the page can make it so much more appealing. In fact, scrapbooking embellishments can add a whole different dimension to your project. Your pages don't have to look flat anymore. Embellishments like our embossed military medallions
add both visual interest and texture to your scrapbook. There's a great selection of scrapbooking embellishments at MemoryScrapbooks.com, but you can get creative on your own, too. With our embellishment glue stick
your options are virtually endless! The glue stick is strong enough to hold a penny, so it can hold onto anything you decide to stick to the page.Buttons
Buttons are around the same size and weight as a penny, so they're definitely a good thing to use as scrapbooking embellishments
. But how do you go about sticking buttons to a scrapbook page? Well, you could try sewing it on (but we don't recommend that!). The best way to stick a button to your scrapbook page is with a little dab of the embellishment glue stick. If you want the button to look like it's been sewn onto the page, you can run some thread through the holes first. Buttons really do make perfect scrapbooking embellishments. Try sticking two or three near the corners of pictures, or put them on the corner of the page itself.Ribbon
Ribbon is probably one of the most versatile scrapbooking embellishments
. Ribbon is soft and non-abrasive, so it doesn't run the risk of damaging any of your pictures. It's also perfect for virtually any scrapbooking theme. You can use pink ribbon for a girly page, or you can use darker brown or green for a masculine one. With your embellishment glue stick, you can use ribbon as a border for the page. Or you can actually tie it into little bows. It's really up to you. If you choose to tie it into bows, you can just tie a knot in the middle of a piece of ribbon and then cut the ends at an angle to look like tails. It's as simple as that. Then just stick your little scrapbooking embellishments to the page with your glue stick.
So get scrapping! Scrapbooking embellishments are addictive; you'll want to have something on every page. Just remember, there's a great selection of embellishments at MemoryScrapbooks.com to get you started on your way.
