SIP #164 - Use Your Scraps!!!

Hello friends!  Oh my goodness I LOVE this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  Who doesn't have scraps that they have saved and need to use! 

 I have soooo many Patterned Paper Scraps so I decided to go with a Starburst/Sunburst Card!   Such a fun and super easy technique.  

I started with a Whisper White panel that measured 4" x 5 1/4" that I planned on using on a top folding card.  I scored 2 inches up from the bottom for my starting point.  I took some scraps from my Winter in the Woods Stack (this has been one of my favorite paper stacks).  My scraps were from a 6" paper stack so I cut them at 1 1/2" and then cut them diagonally on my paper trimmer.  I started them with the tips touching the scored line at 2" and used Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive to adhere them.  After I had everything glued on I turned the panel over and used my paper snips to cut off the over hang.  I ran another scrap of the coordinating patterned paper on the bottom and then ran a piece of black ribbon across the seam.  The sentiment "Merry & Bright" was another scrap that was cut with a stitched circle die and popped up with dimensionals over the ribbon.  I used a scrap of black and gold twine to tie a bow around the black ribbon on the left side.  This was seriously one of the most full of scraps cards I have ever made!  If you've never tried this type of card it is absolutely a lot of fun and a great way to use up scraps!  

Have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina


  1. Very pretty. Love the papers you used for the design and that big sentiment looks great.
