Scrapbook How-to: Transform Die-cut Circles into Other Accents

Die cuts and journaling spots can easily be cut, folded, stamped on, and literally transformed into a different type of accent than originally intended, which makes them a fantastic supply for a scrapper on a budget. Take, for instance, the banner and butterfly on Paula Gilarde’s Snapshots layout from Budget-Friendly Scrapbooking, both of which were created from journaling spots. Give this idea a try when you need a quick, wallet-friendly accent.
