Hi there TSG fans! It’s Tobi here with your weekly dose of cardmaking trends. I thought a lot about what is “trendy” right now and after reading blogs, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter I have come to the conclusion that we are all on a mission to organize our stash and use what we have; which brings me to today’s tutorial…
About a year ago I cut down all of my scraps to 6x6 blocks in an effort to make them more pretty and useable. It made them pretty, but I didn’t use them that often. Recently I saw a person organize them by TYPE and I thought maybe that would help me use them a little more effectively, SO! I had a little crate that was 5 inches wide so I cut down all my 6x6 paper to 5x6 and was left with this:
SO pretty, but again, what do I do with all these scraps?? I sincerely hope that I use all of them, but for now I have a way to use 9-10…
I gathered up a bunch of like-coloured strips and stared at them….. *lightbulb* Why don’t I weave them together??
So I started weaving and realized I didn’t have enough papers, so I pulled a few more and weaved until it looked right. I glued it to a white card base and cut it out to measure 4.25x4.25 and used it on a card!
I made a pinwheel (with a scrap) and stamped the perfect sentiment (on a scrap) and viola! A card born out of my need to organize and use scraps… It doesn’t get much better than this.
Have a great day!
