Using Just Scraps

Pin It
I left all my goodies at my friend's house, but wanted to make something today. So I used a lot of my scrap paper I had piling up. A little Bo Bunny, Echo Park, My Mind's Eye, and my beloved Kraft. I decided to cut one inch strips then cut the strips into two inch pieces. Then I cut one at an angle and used that as my template for all the other pieces. Placed them all down with a smidge of glue for a faux quilting chevron look.

Pin It
After they were adhered pretty well, I sewed around the edge with my sewing machine. For the sentiment I used a Hero Arts cling mount stamp. I cut out a strip of Kraft and inked up the stamp with Versa Mark and sprinkled the image with Sea Foam White embossing powder. Cut it out and adhered it with foam adhesives.

Hope you like it and that it inspires you to use some scraps.

Inky and glittery fingers for all!
