Make Your Scrapbook Supplies Double!

We’re not talking about doubling the size of your scrapbook supply collection. We’re talking about using your scrapbook supplies to make  something other than your latest scrapbook layouts.

Believe it or not, having a huge selection of scrapbooking supplies to choose from can actually be beneficial to more than just your scrapbooking hobby. In fact, what we’ve found is that most people have enough supplies on hand to actually make a variety of other crafts – and STILL have scrapbooking supplies left over!

If you find yourself with some mismatched or leftover embellishments, scrapbooking paper, or supplies, why not try out any of these easy craft ideas?

  1. Make a homemade greeting card for a friend or family member.
  2. Decorate paper place mats with your children for a special Mother’s Day or Father’s Day meal.
  3. Send a sweet note in your sweetie’s lunch box.

This list can go on and on, but here are three that you can try out this week.

Let us know how it goes!

Nylon Flower Arrangement Tutorial

Hello! readers of Memory Scrapbooks

I am Hani from Craftionary
I am a new blogger who has started blogging for the love of crafts and sharing ideas. But of all the things I do I love to make new friends the most.
Craftionary works by targeting a craft line and works to create projects linked to that specific line for about 2 months. You can find a whole lot of variety categorized from nylon flowers to origami. Instant last minute recipes to home remedies and blog designs to get crafty
Today I am going to share my tutorial about nylon flowers arrangement

You will need:
Wire, floral tape, thread, stem wire, stamens and your choice of nylon
A complete guide can be found at Material and Basic Nylon Flower
To make the petals simply wound the wire around a round cap or lid and twist the end
Now cover it with nylon and thread it at the end. Then cut of the excess of nylon
  • To make purple flower make 6 petals with a wire of diameter 6 and pull the wire into oval shape.
  • Join the white stamens to the stem wire using thread. Then thread the petals one by one.
  • Shape the petals into the shape of a flower and wrap floral tape around the stem wire
  • Find detailed instructions for making petals and assembling the flower in this post Basic Nylon Flower
  • For the flower arrangement in the basket  make 4 purple colored flowers and 6 rose colored flowers.
  • Join leaves and your beautiful flower arrangement is ready to welcome the spring.
This year welcome Spring with nylon flowers and be blessed for the colors in your life. :)
A few of my favorite projects that I am loving right now
