Use Up Your Scraps for a Beautiful Card

 Do you save little paper scraps because they are just too pretty to throw away, or because you think, "I'll use this on something someday!"?  Today is someday!  This little card is a perfect design for paper scraps. I saw a similar card on Pinterest one day and decided to put my own spin on it.

This paper retired a long time ago, but I still have quite a bit and decided to use up those pretty pieces to make a fast and easy card!  Those paper scraps are so much prettier on a card than being saved in a bag!

To help you out, I'll even share the measurements. I've also included a products used list at the bottom of this post for all of the products I used that you can still order (remember, the patterned paper retired a long time ago), complete with links and photos, at the end of this post.

Measurements and amounts:
  • White Daisy card base (standard card, measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded)
  • Sweet Leaf Cardstock:  4" x 5 1/4
  • White Daisy Cardstock (for the base you adhere the paper strips to): 3 3/4" x 5"
  • Patterned Paper Strips (you need 5 of them) 3/4" x 5"
  • Lagoon Cardstock (for embossed sentiment): 1/2" x 3 1/2", dovetailed on ends (I popped this up with 3D Foam Tape)
  • 18" twine
  • 2 sparkles

This card literally takes 5-10 minutes to create. It's a perfect "assembly line" card.  Cut enough for lots of cards and put them all together in a short time.  Have fun finding patterned paper is all kinds of patterns and colors and combining them on one card.
