Michelle’s Scrap Treasures

Hi everyone! It’s Michelle here with another Scrap Treasures post. Do you ever find yourself with a package of rhinestone or pearl flourishes and they are too large for cards? Well, don’t toss them into the giveaway pile; break them up into bits and pieces that you can use!

PH2

On the left, you can see what the flourishes pack looks like brand new. The flourish pieces are actually larger than a standard A2-size card and I wasn’t sure how I would use them. On the right, you can see how I have dissected them.

PH3

Cutting the flourishes apart is very easy. You can use your scissors or craft knife. What I usually do is hold my pearl sheet over my card, move it around and see what pearl shapes I have that will work on my card. The arrows show which parts I decided to use.

PH4

After cutting the pieces out, you can use the tip of your craft knife or tweezers to move them and adhere them to your project. In addition to the two larger pieces, I also cut out several single pearls and used them as accents on the card.

Here is the finished card.

Here is a close-up picture.

PH5

I hope I’ve inspired you to use your flourish packs in a different way!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

-Michelle
