Snips n swirls

You know how it is…. it’s time to tidy up your craft area and there are all these shapes you’ve cut out and not used, lots of scraps etc…..? This is what I created this time around…

I covered a tag with a mottled backing paper and edged it with Distress ink before adding some scraps of handmade paper. Then I cut the Mistletoe swirl from the die and painted it with Fresco paint.

Next I added a (Marianne Creatables) Moroccon bird cage which I'd cut and rusted for something else but not used and popped a little bird on the top…

To finish, I made some swirls by wrapping slivers of off-cuts around a quilling tool…

Have fun with your scraps and see what you can make!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. great snippet busting Chris xx

  2. This is great - always handy to be able to use up the scraps which accumulate (I think they breed too)!!!

  3. Wow - what a cool creation, Chris - brilliant use of the scraps and a fabulous finished tag!
