Creating bunting or banners for your layouts is a simple effective technique that easily adds pop. Here I use basic twine (twist it behind the edge of the page and adhere to the rear) and page marker post it notes from a planner kit.

The page markers have adhesive tops which easily fold over the twine to fasten each flag to the bunting.

This is an alternate version of bunting using a simple repeated pennant shape cut from two coordinating papers. (The paper is from the Delightful collection by Authentique).

I sketched inside the upper pennant with a fine-line pen and also darkened the edges to add contrast. The top pennants are secured with a simple black brad.

<center-text-bold>Scrapbook DIY Option 2: Clustering<center-text-bold>

A fun and creative option for a DIY scrapbook embellishment ideas is to use die cuts and layer them together to create mini areas of interest on your project. Clustering is also a great option to use up tiny scraps you have left over from larger projects.

Scrapbook DIY Photo Border Cluster

In the above example I use die cuts from the Kaisercraft Madame Boutique collection to create a border for a photo. In addition to the die cuts I added two resin brad roses and a teeny hessian flower.

The vertical die cut is edged with an alcohol marker in aqua.

This tag cluster was also created using die cuts from the Kaisercraft Madame Boutique collection and again I edged one of the die cuts (the striped arrow) with an alcohol marker in aqua, in this cluster I add a faux sapphire brad and a timber clock dial embellishment.

Here I use two strips of patterned paper, that I punched holes in with a single punch and then laced up tying the pieces of paper together with coordinating ric-rac ribbon. This technique can be used along with clustering along the edge of your layout or as a border or anchor for your photo.

Adding extra dimension to your work is particularly appealing for layouts that will be framed or on display and also works well for most beyond the page projects.

Scrapbook DIY Wadding Backed Clouds
Scrapbook DIY Wadding Backed Clouds

These die cut clouds are glued onto white polyester wadding and cut around the edges so that the fluffy wadding shows on the outside. One of the clouds has a silver lining, but as we know, all of them do really ;).

These clouds would work well with beaded dangles as raindrops or clustered with a moon and stars. They could also partially cover a sunburst for a summer or beach layout.
