Happy New Year, World!
I hope you all had a very
safe and fun New Year's holiday this year, and that you had time to
spend on our beloved Crafty Hobby! This month I decided to talk to you
about wood veneers. Have you seen them online or in the store? Do you
wonder what you're supposed to do with them? I mean, they're cheap.
They're cute. They come in many imaginable shapes. And they're little
(usually). So what is their purpose? Why are so many manufacturers
making them? Why are they so popular? Well, lucky for you, I have an
answer: They're FUN. They're CUSTOMIZABLE. They MAKE A BIG IMPACT on
your project. Want to see a few examples?
First up: Use
them straight out of the package, just as they are. No altering. No
fussing. Just adhere and go (a little tip: glue dots and liquid glues
like Glossy Accents work best).
5. Paint them.
And most importantly, come into Scraphappy and find the inks and
paints, glitter, and embossing powders you want to play with, pick up
some wood veneers, go home, use your imagination, and HAVE FUN!!!
