<center-text-bold>Scrapbook DIY Option 1 : Bunting<center-text-bold>
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.
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.
