How to use up your paper strips.




Hola! Today I'm sharing two layouts using strips of paper we tend to accumulate while crafting.

Feel free to post any questions in the comments section OR join the discussion over at Do more with less's Facebook Page [I just started this page and would love some support! Come "like" my blog!]


Step 1: Arrange strips of paper on white cardstock. Spray various colours of mist.


Step 2: Remove paper strips for this fun background.

Step 3: Scrap away! :) I upcycled a bottlecap and an ice-cream stick! :)


 

Supplies: American Crafts & Pink Paislee patterned papers, Maya mists, crepe paper, bottle cap, ice-cream stick, Technique Tuesdays stamp, twine, foam tags, paper doilies, ribbon, rub-on and Gauche Alchemy embellishments.


Step 4: Weave the misted strips (that were used for masking the background for the first layout).

Step 5: Scrap your photo! I upcycled some backing paper and a tab pull! And used loads of scraps! :)




Supplies: My Little Shoebox, Echo Park Paper, Prima, Sassafras and Cosmo Cricket patterned papers, packaging, tab pull, Imaginisce rub-on, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, Sharpies, thread and Gauche Alchemy embellishments.

Totally do-able right? I would love to see what you do with your paper scraps! :)

In case you missed any of my week-long upcycled projects...here are the links to them..
