Flowers for scrapbooking

unique scraps
Flowers make wonderful scrapbook embellishments! While it is possible to use dried flowers in your scrapbook, they are a natural plant material and their cell walls contain lignin, which can lead to deterioration of scrapbook pages, so for the sake of safety when you are concerned with preserving your scrapbook, dried flowers should always be encapsulated in a safe medium, such as a cut-down and sealed page protector.

An excellent alternative are silk flowers. Those by quality manufacturers are generally colorfast and lightfast, and the color range is endless. An added bonus are the "prepunched" holes in the center of each one, making them easy to adhere to your pages. We offer a wide variety of silk flowers, in various kinds of packages such as all pinks, tiny flower color assortment, and variety pack, allowing you to have at hand a wide variety of petals without investing a large amount of money. Visit our site and click on "UniqueScraps Silk Flower Embelishments"

While flower embellishments are perfect for scrapbook page layouts and memory albums, they are are not just for scrapbooking! Silk Flowers also make wonderful embellishments for handmade cards, rubber stamp arts, altered art works, and much more.

They can be used in delicate jewelry and wearables, hair embellishments, decorations for OOAK polymer clay fairies and figurines, decorating gift packages, decoupage on flowerpots, plates, and other many other items, dressing up candles, and more.

Purchase a few packs of UniqueScraps Flower Embellishments today, and prepare to let your creative side run wild!

Tear Bears are coming!

NEW! Take the work out of cutting out face pieces for your tear bears and other torn art animals. We are working on our Tear Bear face sets, and hope to have the photos uploaded this weekend. We currently offer faces in bear (black noses) and kitten (pink noses), both of which can be used for other animals as well. Eyes are included in colors such as blue, green, yellow, and multi. Our sets even include black pupils for the eyes, if you prefer to have fully paper pieced eyes instead of drawing the pupils with a pen.

We are also almost finished developing new Tear Animals, and will have patterns available soon. Photos coming soon of Tear Animals -- these are especially cute on Baby Pages, Early Childhood Pages, and Zoo pages but can be adapted for other themes as well. We will be adding layout samples as time permits.

Keep checking back, and happy scrappin'!

More ideas for using scrapbooking fibers

We are adding new ideas to our "Using Scrapbooking Fibers" page on a regular basis.

One of the great ways to use fibers is to attach other embellishments to your scrapbook pages (or handmade cards) with them
  • you can dangle punched shapes, fancy buttons, charms, etc.

  • fibers can be used to "sew" a button on a page, or to add a button to another embellishment

  • beads or sequins can be threaded onto thin fibers

Be sure to visit UniqueScraps to see more great ideas for using fibers, and remember to bookmark us in order to see new ideas as they are added.

Some of our favorites ...

make wisps of smoke or steam coming from a chimney, locomotive, or cup of hot chocolate, coffee, or tea, cooking pot, or cooling pie

try just stitching the stems and/or leaves and then using our Silk Flower Embellishments for the petals

if you have a stamped image on your layout, look for parts that can be layered over with fibers

These are just a sampling. For the complete list, visit us for everything about Scrapbooking Fibers !
