When shopping in trendy crafty stores, all of the beautiful embellishments certainly provide amazing eye candy. But sometimes your wallet can feel a bit intimidated by the costs of all those beauties, and that tends to make you a bit hesitant to actually use them if you actually purchase them. today we have a series of EIGHT tutorials from some of your favorite team members on how to create custom embellishments for just mere pennies. All with basic supplies that you probably already have on hand!
Your challenge is to create some custom embellishments using inspiration from one of the tutorials above. Then create a project using them. You can choose to re-create an exact project from one of the team members or design something of your very own.
Here's a look at the fabulous ideas the team has developed for some fantastic embellishments you can make yourself!
