Remnants into Cards

After all the layering and piecing was complete on a few 12x12 layouts, there was only one full sheet of paper left from my most recent Scraptastic kit. I had really cut into those papers! With so many little strips and scraps left, I knew just what to do, and assembled a couple of cards. First, a birthday card:


Then a new baby card (it's baby season in our family!):


Both began something like this:




This is such a great way to use up those paper scraps:
  • Adhere narrow strips of patterned paper to a cardstock base.
  • Pencil in design or letters.
  • Cut out and ink edges.
  • Attach to card. 
A layout title made with this method would really make a statement! :)
