3.24 Thrifty Thursday - Paper Scraps

Post by jessicabree on Wed Mar 02, 2011 10:32 pm

We all have those big piles of left over patterned paper! Well this week, I am hoping I can inspire you to use them up Smile

While scraps are great for cards and tags, they can also be great for layouts. Below are a few ideas for using up those "leftovers"...

Get out a punch and use the shapes to create a background or border for your layout






Create a simple block design to use up smaller pieces of papers... if you want to mix several patterns than consider sticking to a simple color combo to make this easier




Challenge yourself to make a layout or card using just a bunch of paper strips


If you want to get fancy, create your own stripes or starbursts using leftover papers

LOVE this tip! I just recently bought those adorable fiskars cloud punches and now keep them handy when I have a tiny piece left I punch a cloud out before throwing the paper out since Im addicted to clouds lately.
