Hi, it's Diane today with a couple of "off the page" projects to share. When choosing Creative Charms embellishments, I think most people plan to use them for cards and scrapbook pages. Sometimes it is fun to think outside of the box and find other ways to use your Creative Charms treasures.
These glittered ornaments have been popular for several years. If you don't know how to make them you can check THIS POST on my personal blog for directions. The ornaments are often decorated with vinyl initials and words. I used some of the leafy ribbon from the Fuzzy Daisy Kit, two colors of Gradient Gem Stickers and some of the brown Velvet Ric Rac ribbon for this ornament.
The Vintage Metal Frames make great playing pieces for a game. I used two of the Christmas sets to make this tic-tac-toe game.
I punched 3/4 inch circles to adhere to the frames and cover the adhesive. You can easily attach the pieces to a slightly larger base if you would like to.
You can even store the playing pieces in one of the little organza bags that sometimes come with the large Creative Charms butterflies.
If you would like more detailed directions for these projects, please visit my blog, Capadia Designs. These are quick and easy projects when you have the Creative Charms items to work with.
I hope you have fun thinking of some new ways to use your Creative Charms embellishments - be sure to leave a comment and tell us what you make when you start thinking "off the page."
Have a very Merry Christmas!
