Puzzle Pieces, Sequins, and Rhine Stones in Your Scrapbooks
Puzzle pieces make playful embellishments and borders. Puzzle pieces give a creative and playful look to children's art and educational scrapbooks.
Since, the bottom of the puzzle pieces is flat, gluing and placing puzzle pieces is simple. Be aware, however, that puzzle pieces are generally not lignin free and acid free. This could drastically reduce the life of your scrapbook page.
Sequins can add a creative flair and a dash of color to scrapbook pages as embellishments. If placed randomly in a variety of colors, sequins cause a dramatic, abstract, playful attraction to items and pages. This might be good for a young adult or college student scrapbook.
However, if the sequins are placed in specific patterns and colors the effects can be elegant and dainty. This might be appropriate for scrapbooks for older individuals.
Simply glue and place individual sequins using tweezers.
Sequins come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Sequins are available at any local craft store.
Body art rhinestones can also be added to embellish scrapbook pages in a creative and colorful way. Rhinestones add color and shine to your scrapbook pages making any dull page more exciting.
Unlike regular rhinestones, body art rhinestones have an adhesive backing. Thus, body art rhinestones are easy to place directly onto scrapbook pages.
Rhinestones and body art rhinestones come in many different shapes and colors. Both types are available at most craft stores.
