Stampin' Up! has put some really pretty paper stacks in the past few mini catalogs, but they are an odd size. The stacks are 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. They are an awesome price at just $6.95 for 48 sheets, but I always end up with little 1 inch strips. So, here are a couple of ideas to use up your pretty little scraps.
Edited on May 17, 2017 to add video. This older post still gets a lot of traffic, so I thought I would update it a bit with some papers and stamps that are still available. I also started making videos, so I thought I would share that here as well.
First I glued the strips down onto some paper. I used my grid paper to make sure I lined them up nicely.
You can either use your piece of paper strips under a frame, or cut it out. I used my Hearts Collection Framelits Dies for the cards here, but there are so many possibilities! I really like the framelits, I think I have them all by now!
These tags were made with the tiny tags stamp set and punched out with the jewelry punch. The tiny safety pin is from the Vintage trinkets embellishments.
For this card I cut a heart from the top layer of the card, then used dimensional to raise the top layer off the bottom layer a bit. I tied a piece of Natural 7/16 Trim ribbon around one side of the heart frame.
The Thank you stamp is from the Bitty Banners Stamp set, and cut out with the Itty Bitty Banners framelits.
Thanks for stopping by today!
