Hello friends! Hope your summer so far has been filled with lots of relaxing days, and fun filled activities! Mine has been a busy one, but I have been really good so far about taking lots of photos of my kids everywhere we go. Scrapbooking my photos is kind of my guilty pleasure. I am all about making pages that are simple and easy to make. I try to print photos as soon as we get back from a vacation or activity, and I always try to make at least a few pages a month so I stay caught up.
One of the ways I save a little time and money on my albums, is by making my own embellishments. I'm going to teach you how to make scrapbook embellishments the easy way! The Mod Podge Mod Melts are a fabulous way to make your own scrapbooking embellishments with just a little bit of affordable glue, and rubber molds that you can use again and again! Did I mention the glue comes in a variety of colors and metallic shades?
I know, I know. I had you at metallic. 🙂
How to Make Scrapbook Embellishments
To make your own scrapbook embellishments, all you need is a Mod Melts rubber mold, glue gun, Mod Melts glue sticks, scissors, and your scrapbook page of course!
To get started, just insert a gold metallic glue stick into your glue gun, and allow it to fully heat up. You may need to squeeze out any previous glue to make sure your metallic glue comes out clean.
Slowly squeeze your glue gun handle so the Mod Melts glue slowly fills the mold until you have the desired amount.
After your embellishments have cooled, gently remove them and trim and stray glue pieces that you may have with your scissors.
Now that you know how to make scrapbook embellishments, you are ready to craft! Just figure out their placement on your scrapbook page, then adhere them to your page with . . . more glue! I know it seems crazy, but you can just use your same glue gun to adhere the pieces to your page! Kinda convenient, isn't it?!
That's it! I love how the Mod Melts give my page a lot of texture and variety, but they are still thin enough that my album doesn't get too bulky. They have such a lovely sheen to them too! Who doesn't love a gold globe, right??
It's super easy to make your own scrapbook embellishments with Mod Melts. And I can use this same mold again and again with different colors of glue. I can't wait to make more for my summer scrapbook pages!
