Something New

I came across these when I was browsing around Paper Craft Planet. They are called Scraplings. The ones I came across were tiny 1 1/4" x 4 1/4", I tried that but found them much too narrow so mine are 2 1/4" x 4 1/4". I don't think it matters what size they are just the object of it is to use up the narrow "waste" strips that you cut off from an A4 sheet when you make a square card and all those scraps of paper that are too gorgeous to throw away. So here are mine.

So for my first one I used a Martha Stewart punch to make a decorated bottom. The image is from Stamping Up- A tree for all seasons and the sentiment is a stamps away stamp. The papers are some left over bits from a monthly kit, as is the ribbon.

The second one I've used Forever Friends papers with a little bit of pink rik rak. The stamp is from Stamps Away too. I then added some little pink gems.

The third one's images are from a clear Hero Arts set and the sentiments are from the same set. Papers are just left overs from my stash.

All the images have been stamped onto Avery labels, mine were just the right size and then I rounded them off with my corner rounder punch.

I think these would make great little gift tags or maybe you could put them in with some stamped images that you send to people if you didn't have time to make a card?

I'm going to make a little pile of them to keep , in case I need something quick. It's a great way of using up all those little bits of paper that you don't want to throw away because they are so nice.

Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2009 is a good year for you. I know it will be for me, as I'm coming back to the UK!!
