Hello there, lovelies! What do you do with all those paper scraps and leftover paper pieces? I have quite a big pile of self made background paper pieces in my stash. Most of the time these pieces are so big that I have no heart to just toss them. Therefore the paper leftover box is slowly but surely filling itself up..
Therefore I wanted to „tackle“ this pile of paper. I went thru the pile and found a lovely yellowish toned piece of DIY paper. I wanted to use it for cardmaking, but it just didn´t feel right to create simple cardbackgrounds from it. That is why I chose to stamp some butterflies with my lovely CraftEmotions butterfly stamps onto the paper first.
Next I just fussy cut them.
Next I glued the butterflies on their places and outlined the bookpaper pieces with a black pen.
After that I stamped a few sentiments to go with the butterflies, so I used a leftover piece of cardstock for that purpose and stamped along using the Tim Holtz „Hashtags“ stamp set.
Now all I needed to do was to cut the sentiments into a right size and glue them on their places. And for finishing touches I also added some glitter glue onto the butterflies and let it dry. That makes them (and the cards) look more festive :).
This is a fast and easy way to get rid of those leftover paper pieces.
Above are some detail photos of the finished cards. I hope you like the idea and get inspired to use those leftover papers soon :). Have fun!
