I got this tip off www.pixelpaintpapers.com -- of course, I don't have a scanner, but if you do.... Realistic Embellishments Do you like the look of realistic embellishments, but don't know how to create them on the computer? Your scanner can be a useful tool for this. Using white cardstock, attach your embellisments, whether its eyelets, brads, twine or ribbon. Then scan your items. Once you have created a digital file, copy and paste each item into a separate file. Using your eraser tool, remove the white background around your embellishment. Save it with a transparent background and you will be able to reuse it for any project you create.
