Use your scraps…

May 12, 2010

This card was cre­at­ed using up some of the scraps I have been sav­ing. Scraps make the per­fect sized cards to attach to gift bags, presents or to use as enclo­sure cards. And with Grad­u­a­tions just around the cor­ner I’m sure some of you will be need­ing a few cards… I say make them and keep the sav­ings for more scrap­ping sup­plies.


  • Trim 3 pat­terned paper scraps to 2″ x 4″
  • Scor the left edge of the pat­terned paper piece that will go on top of your card a .25″ from the edge.
  • Fold over the scored sec­tion and attach it to the pat­terned paper piece that is 2″ x 4″ (this will be the inside sec­tion of the card) using a strong adhe­sive.
  • Sew a straight stitch along the left side of the card.
  • Cut a piece of trim and attach to the low­er back por­tion of the card using a strong liq­uid adhe­sive.
  • Cov­er the back of the card (if not dou­ble sided pat­terned paper) with pat­terned paper.
  • Trim the right edge of the card using scal­lop scis­sors.
  • Punch two hearts out of pat­terned paper, ink the edges using creamy brown ink.
  • Attach the hearts on top of each oth­er using a foam square.
  • Apply sen­ti­ment.
  • Ink the edges of the card using Creamy Brown ink.
  • Attach an eye­let to the upper left cor­ner then thread seam bind­ing inside the eye­let.
