Use Tags and Embellishments to Give Your Scrapbooks that
Personal Yet Professional Touch
Tags are a little added touch of professionalism that adds to
the overall well thought out look to your scrapbook. Tags can be
used for accents, captions, and thought bubbles as well as
dedications. The design of your tags will depend entirely on your
personal needs and desires.
Thus, tags can be big or small, square or specially shaped,
white or colored, plain or textured.
Furthermore, tags need not be made of paper. Some of the most
interesting tags are made from fabric, wood, and furniture odds
and ends found around the house. Be creative.
Pre-made tags are available at most craft or office supply
Your own unique embellishments add a special personal touch to
your scrapbook pages. Embellishments can be used as the main
focus of your page, to highlight items, or as borders.
Embellishments can range from simple items such as stickers and
ribbon to more complex techniques such as adding faux beads and
silver accenting. Use your imagination and creativity.
Embellishments need not be expensive. Odds and ends that you
have from other craft projects work just fine. Be on the lookout
for sales on fabric, plastic flowers, lace, beads, and whatever
else takes your fancy. These items will no doubt come in handy on
your next scrapbook project. Also keep a sharp eye out for deals
in second hand stores and garage sales. Often used items can be
ripped apart and the pieces reused literally for only
