For my 2Peas GG Blog Hop project, I decided to create a fun, quick, and easy card using scraps of paper.
I am sure I am not the only scrapbooker whose desk often looks like this after creating a layout:
LOTS of scrap strips of paper!
Some pattern paper, some just cardstock, but still - LOTS OF STRIPS...
So I thought why not create a fun card using those strips before I clean my desk off?!
I started by taking a plain white cardstock for the base, and then just began adhereing the strips of paper to my white card - leaving a bit of space between each. I decided I would pull them all together by stitching one single line down the bottom with my sewing machine.
I then just added the flower, and pop dotted the quote (also a left over scrap!), and added the foam alphabet stickers for a nice title.

American Crafts Stitched Finish
Once it was completed, I did not once wince throwning away the rest of the scraps :)
Leave a comment for me and tell me if you keep scraps of paper?! Once you leave a comment, you will be entered to win a $15 gift certificate from www.twopeasinabucket.com. The winner will be announced on November 8th, so please check back on that day!
