This week over at Whimsical Wednesdays the challenge is to use your scraps
So I wanted to share another way you can use all your small scraps to create.
I have a very hard time throwing out any designer paper so I am always left with strips that are too small to cut with yet too big to throw away. I'm sure there are some of these in your piles :)
What I did was pick out some coordinating paper
I thought I would make a Christmas card since I have to start making my cards and it is Christmas in July all over Blogging World!
I cut my strips into 1 x 1 inch squares
And attached them to a Shipping Label to make a patchwork design.
Your completed patchwork is now ready to cut and I do have to say even though it is thicker it still cuts great with the cricut
Here is my completed card!
I used Create a Critter for the tree and just hid the face.
I added it to a simple z fold card and stamped my sentiment in the upper corner.
Since it was alittle plain I added some Candi's to the corners in opposite colors.
I didn't want to add too much to take away from the patchwork tree.
There you have it~~ another fun and easy way to use up your scraps.
I hope you will join us over at Whimsical Wednesdays for this fun challenge.
