A little creative ...

In the stunning Country Papercraft's November kit you will find a whole lot of embellishments.

Nothing unusual with that. Marg gives a lot of thought to all the bitsers that go into her monthly kits and I for one love opening my box of goodies and tipping all the goodies out on my bench to have a nosey ... I do that before I check out the papers - well at least I am honest!!!

This month we have some gorgeous wee pretties and in amongst the pretties are some leaves with long wire stems. Not that leaves aren't pretties, I've got a thing for leaves, feathers, flowers - ohhhhhhhhhh dear - lots of things really.

But anyway ...

Sometimes challenges call for metal ...

So the next time you are thinking to yourself, metal, OMG what am I going to use ... think about this!

The wire on your leaves ... cut it off.

In this first example I have used it to hang my banner on it ...

This next example I have punched out butterflies and have used my piercing thingymajig and rolled the wire around it and glued the scrolly bits to my butterfly as an antennae ...

and my final example - I've thread the wire through the holes in these buttons and made the scrolly bits again using my piercer thingymajig.

So the next time you have to use wire and you are scratching your head for an idea you might just remember to use the wires on your leaves.

Happy creating.
