Get To Know Serendipity Squares
Serendipity Squares are wonderfully cute little squares that have been embellished with cutoffs and oddments of Scrapbooking supplies. They can add dimension and color to boring layouts. The most popular reason for using these cute little serendipity squares is to create theme layouts, where you may have a series of pages that need a common design theme. These are especially great for multiple layouts that have very little in common either by photo subject or color.
Start with small one inch squares or a long strip that you will later cut into squares and using layers of different card, vellum and punches , randomly layer the pieces on top of each other until you come up with a design you like. Add a creative flair by adding glitter, wire or fibre or for a unique square add a charm or other 3D dimensional embellishment.
Although these are called Serendipity Squares they can of course be any shape you like, such as tags, circles and triangles.
