MAKING EVERY SCRAP OF PAPER WORK FOR YOU!
By Lee Brehon
“RECYCLE REDUCE REUSE…” Three very important words! And, as a scrapbooker, I am reminded daily that I must do my best to use up as much of my product as possible. So… I think you will enjoy this next project, especially if you want to get rid of that pile of scraps once and for all!
So here it is…
Like all scrapbookers we end up with little tail ends of paper that just won’t work anywhere at all!!Well, I’ve come up with a fun way to make almost every last piece of scrap-paper work in our favour!
First combine an assortment of paper scraps based on color.
Then carefully cut out the flowers or doohickies.
Place your cut out images onto a piece of background paper. (Note: patterned paper looks best for this project.)
Then mod-podge the doohickies to your background paper. I used several coats, just to make sure the heavy paper was glued down well.
Now take a large outline letter stamp or image and stamp it onto your mod-podged paper.
Cut the image out.
You now have a totally unique embellishment that you can use anywhere! Heres an example of what I did with mine:
What I really enjoy about this project is seeing all the different combinations of colors and patterns when it is finished. I think you will really have some fun with this one.
Thanks for letting me share!
