Glitzy label embellishments

Whoa!  I need sunglasses!  I put together these label embellishments using some glam stickers I have had for some time and never got around to using.  I saw the idea on a YouTube channel, but I made a few changes.  First off, I cut my labels using my Cricut Explore.  I cut them first from cereal box chipboard, and then from a fancy gold foil paper I have had since forever.  Each label is about 3" wide.  I covered the chipboard pieces with the fancy paper with some glue stick.  Worked like a charm. 

I then went in search of embellishments that would look good with the paper.  I found some cool stuff, as you can see, mostly fancy stickers.  I do need to use my stash.  Oh,  I also used some gold foil doilies and some paper ribbons. 

What am I going to do with these, you may ask.  I thought they would look good on a greeting card front as a single embellishment, making some very easy cards.   If I were doing a craft show, which I am not this year, I would sell them individually, like I would decorated tags.  They really do look wow in person. 

Very fun project, and easy and fast.  I will definitely be repeating this idea and see what all I can come up with--one sheet of paper, one cereal box front, and some fun items that just sit in my drawers.  How easy is that?

  1. This looks like a really fun project! I, too, need to use more of my stash and sometimes it is hard to find uses for all the fun embellishments we see and hoard! Great job, thanks for sharing!
