DIY Faux Flair ~ Epoxy Embellishments

Post contains affiliate links.

Flair buttons are all the rage in scrapbooking circles right now and while I LOVE the look of them, the price tags I’ve seen for them are rather ridiculous.  After seeing a lot of comments about making your own, I thought I’d give it a shot and share a tutorial with others.  This is the easiest DIY embellishment I’ve ever made and I encourage you to give it a shot as well!

It’s just as simple as adding a 3D epoxy circle sticker to a 1 inch circle.  You can use stickers on cardstock, printed images, and more!  I used my Fiskar’s 1 inch circle punch to make the base of these images and just attached it to the epoxy sticker.  Here are the flair pieces that I made in this tutorial video:

I did find that the images printed on card stock or stickers added to card stock produced a much better result that ones printed/added to printer paper.  The thicker card stock paper produces an opaque look that doesn’t allow bleed through from colors behind the paper.

To give you a better idea of how these faux flair badges look on your layouts, here is a layout that I did recently using one of them.

As always, I would love to hear from you!  Let me know in the comments what you think of this super easy DIY embellishment or join me in my Facebook Group!
