Embellishments are a great way to accessorise your scrapbook page layouts however buying them ready made can be extremely costly. Using your scrapbooking tools you can easily and effectively create your own free embellishments at a fraction of the cost.

Adding tags to your pages is one of the most popular ways of entering details of the event in question. You can make your own scrapbook tags from scraps of card and accessorize it using paper clips, punches, glitter and scraps of paper that you may have considered throwing away.

Use can even use old items of clothing to bring a page to life by cutting off and using the buttons or even removing a whole pocket and adding it to your scrapbook page layout. A pocket can be used to store memorabilia or simply a great way to insert a tag.

Anyone who owns a computer can print images and pictures which will cost next to nothing. These images can be used to accessories tags and backing paper. You can search the web for online craft supplies and for scrapbook quotes or better still make you your own and print those too.

Instead of searching craft stores for fancy colored brads, change the color of the ones you already have. Most scrapbook enthusiasts will know if they enter a craft store to get some scrapbook supplies they are unlikely to leave the store with only one item so steering clear will also save you money. You can change the color of you brads by embossing them. Make sure you hold the brad with a pair of tweezers as they can get quite hot. Try not to over heat as the brad may become brittle.

You can also try decorating a paperclip with ribbon or yarn or changing the color with peel off pens. Paperclips are an alternative way to secure your pictures to your scrapbook page without having to glue the photo down.

Instead of paying out heaps of cash for rub ons, most of which never get used, why not create your own! You will need a computer, printer and transparency paper. By creating you own you can play around with different fonts and text sizes and there will be no waste as you will only print the scrapbook quotes you need.

The main thing is to keep thinking of new scrapbook ideas. When you have a scrapbook page layout in mind that requires embellishments do not rush out and buy them. Try and see if you have adequate scrapbook tools to create your own free embellishments. Making your own embellishments for scrapbook pages not only saves you money but you will also be creating something totally unique.

Above all, never throw away scrap paper or odd bits of card. In fact before you throw anything away even if it is a house hold item consider if it can be used to make free embellishments for your projects.
