Hello! Ginni here and today I want to share a quick and easy project with you using some scraps I had left over from another project.
I don’t know about you, but I just HATE throwing away my extra pieces and leftover punched borders! I have to MAKE myself because I just keep thinking “I’ll use them someday.” So this is a quick and easy way to use those scraps and create a unique gift or element for your pages!
My fellow Design Team Member Colleen and I are on a forum together and she challenged us to use those Formica samples to create a tag. You can get the samples for free at your larger hardware stores. I chose these three samples because my husband and I are going to be building a new house in the next year and I want Formica countertops. When I realized I really didn’t like the ones I picked with the decor we’re going to have, I decided to use them for some tags to encourage my grandchildren to read books. I need to make more which won’t be a problem because these are ADDICTIVE!!! 🙂 Oh and if you don’t want to use Formica samples, you can use any other thing that you’d normally use to make tags with. Just create your own background!
I had some leftover pieces of border using Kreaxions Punch #909. So I pulled them out and added some brads and bling. I adhered everything with Ailene’s 3-in-1 glue, outlined them with a Sharpie pen and added some twine and fibers at the top. Quick, simple, easy and cheap!
I hope this has encouraged you to use your leftover pieces from your Kreaxions punches to create something fun and unusual! Happy Punching!
