Hi Amy and Welcome! It depends on the ones you are looking at, some are rubber stamps, some are die cuts. I know there are also rubons. Some are sold on this site in the store and some you could even just cut out with a scissors, just depends which ones you like

I think those things are great too. I'm currently trying to plan out what I"m getting from someone on etsy so I can add some of those to my pages too.

this is great info. on this page that i am tagging here, i simply used the tip of the stickle bottle and doodled the flourish down the side of the page. I wasn't happy with it but is was the first time I had attempted it, so I went with it.

hope this helps a little. I added gems to the ending points on mine for a little added bling.

Templets too are a inexpensive way to add swirls

I make my own swirls. I like doing it on label paper, that way I can cut it out and use it as a sticker. It's fun because I get to use exactly the colors I want, and if I want it florally or leafy... give it a try! you'll love it.

I bought packs of 24 rainbow colors and 24 black on Etsy for something like $4.00 + shipping. It was worth every dime to me. I also draw my own swirls using doodling templates.


I got the swirl on this page from Etsy.
