Hello my friends and sweet bloggers. Today what I have to share is my Embellishments that I made for a swap at My Scrap Room. For the perimeters of the swap we were to create 4 Stick Pins, 2 Altered Bottle Caps, 4 Handmade Flowers, and 2 Altered Keys.
We were to make 3 sets of Embellishments and keep one set for ourselves. This is my second set. They are almost the same. Slight difference in the keys and the bottle caps. It was so much fun to create these embellishments that I actually made a few more than 3 sets.
These are the stick pins I included in my swap package. I wanted to keep with a vintage shabby chic look in basic white colors so that they can be used in any project by my swap parteners.
Here are my Altered Bottle Caps. I purchased my bottle caps from Michael's and had a horrible time trying to flatten them in my cuttlebug. They didn't come out evenly so I need to try a different bottle cap next time. I really like these as embellishments and want to create more. I used some die cuts for the background on some and lace on others.
Here are the handmade flower for the swap. I crochet all the flowers and used lace and bits and piece of gold or white mesh for some of the flowers and eyelash lace for others. The centers are "Spare Parts" from Hobby Lobby.
These are the altered keys. My keys came from the $1 bin at Michaels. They are a pretty good size and would look stunning hanging from a mini album or as an embellishment on a mini album. This video has better close ups of all the embellishments and the packaging. Thank you so much for stopping by to see my project that I have been working on the last couple weeks. See you soon!
