If you’re a scrapbooker or card maker, it’s likely that you’ve been saving paper scraps that are just too pretty to throw away.
It’s time to use your pretty paper scraps!
In this video I’ll show you how to use a 1″ wide pretty paper scrap to make a quick and easy thank you card. Be sure to watch until the end to see another card you could make with this same size paper scrap!
Lovely Lipstick card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Whisper White: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Pretty Paper: 1″ x 4″
- Stamp before you tape. Just in case you don’t get a nice crisp image. That way you won’t have wasted your pretty paper scrap and you may even be able to cover your “mistake” with it!
- Use Wink of Stella to add a little color and shimmer to your butterfly. If you stamp with a waterbased ink (like Stampin’ Up!’s Classic Pads) then the Wink of Stella will lightly smear the color from the stamped image. That’s a good thing!
- Swap out “thank you” for the greeting of your choice and this card could be used for any occasion!
Now go grab a pretty paper scrap and make it into a card! Then be sure to send that card out.
P.S. When you use the One Sheet Wonder Technique with your pretty papers you won’t have as many paper scraps left over!
