Using Those Patterned Paper Scraps!

We all have them – those leftover bits and pieces of Designer Series Paper that are too pretty to throw away, but not quite big enough for a full card front. Well, today, I’m here to show you how to use up those scraps in a fun and creative way! Let me show you what I made!

I’m a huge fan of pretty patterned paper, and I know you probably are too. But let’s be honest, we all have a box (or two or ten) overflowing with those beautiful Designer Series Paper scraps!

For this card, I used the beautiful Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper. The good news is that this collection is carrying over into the new Annual Catalog, which launches on May 1st.  However, the Beautiful Balloons Bundle that I used for the sentiment is retiring on that same day, so be sure to snag it before it’s gone!

This is a really simple fun fold. The measurements are:

  • Blueberry Bushel- 5½” by 4¼”
  • DSP- 5¼” by 4″
  • Blueberry Bushel- 2¼” by 8″ scored at 4″
  • Basic White (2)- 2″ by 3¾”
  • DSP strips- ½” wide, various lengths
  • Basic White (sentiment)- ¾” by ¾”

The card that I created features a bright and cheery color scheme, but you can easily adapt this project to fit any occasion. For a thank you card, you might use bold, primary colors.  For a sympathy card, you might use softer, pastel colors. The possibilities are endless!

I’ve created a video tutorial that shows you exactly how to create this fun fold card.  In the video, I also share some additional tips and tricks for using up your Designer Series Paper scraps. You can find the video by clicking the button below!

The Beautiful Balloons Bundle is retiring on May 1st, so be sure to grab yours before it’s gone!  The Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper, however, will be available in the new Annual Catalog. See all the supplies I used and shop my online store below!

I hope this blog post inspires you to take a look at your scrap bin and see the creative potential that’s hiding there. Happy Stamping!
