Saving the Pieces....

....from other projects! Good morning crafters!

Chrissy here to share a quick tip on how to get the most bang for your buck. Remember that Steampunk Watch Ornament I showed you a couple weeks ago?

Well, I hope you saved that beautiful oval piece that you had to pop out of the frame because it makes the perfect little background for a little charm.

I saved the oval pop-out and made this little piece using it. I simply embossed it using my Sizzix Vintaj machine and added some embellishments.

Heat emboss a little Piccolo butterfly with some new Piccolo Turquoise Lagoon Embossing Powder for a bit of whimsy. Coat a couple Piccolo flourishes with some Piccolo Metallic Gold 3D Enamel Gel.

Add some small alphabet letters and a thin coat of Glastique to a resin flower and VOILA! You have a nice little charm to attach to a card or gift in no time flat. Not to mention, you cut down on your waste from a previous project!

Thanks for taking a look and remember to look at every piece with a creative eye!
