Weekly Idea-Share

As scrapbookers and crafters, we know that some of the best ideas come from trial-and-error. The following was a trial-and-AWESOME! (cheeeeeesy, I know :) ) But I was pretty excited when this worked! An album I was hired to do recently was requested to include lots of purple and lots of butterflies. I found these butterfly stickers I purchased previously from The Dollar Tree which were for putting on walls for decoration. I normally find it difficult to decorate the front of a 12x12 album because I always feel it needs larger embellishments. These butterflies were the perfect size.

I decided to see if they would stick to the cover of the purple album I had purchased for this project.... THEY DID! And quite well too! I didn't even need any extra adhesive. If the clear cover that the album is in was not going to stay on the album, I would have used some adhesive, but since it's staying on it, it keeps the butterflies in place. So I'll see you in the wall decor section of your local dollar store!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
