using paper scraps

Using paper scraps to make handmade Christmas cards let's you challenge your creativity.  Use dimensional stickers, ribbon, punches, buttons or charms to help decorate the boxes in the card.

I love looking through my left over scraps of paper when thinking of ideas which is how I ended up with this card. I decorated it with ribbon, a dimensional sticker, stick-on gems and used a scallop and snowflake punch.

What's great about this style of card is that you can use up small embellishments that have been sitting in your supplies box.

CARD MAKING SUPPLIES:

  • (4) Styles or colors of scrapbook pattern paper 2" w x 2" h
  • Dimensional sticker
  • Printed message from scallop punch
  • Ribbon
  • Snowflake or other embellishment
  • Stick-on gems
  • Blank white card 5" x 5" (or you can cut a 6 1/2" w x 5" h down to size)

CARD MAKING TOOLS:

  • Foam tape
  • Double sided tape
  • Scallop punch
  • Snowflake punch
  • Adhesive dots or glue gun

  • Other embellishments you can substitute for the ribbon or snowflake can be a button, preferably a green, white or red colored button to help coordinate with the holiday colors.  If you use other holiday colors like blue or sometimes, purple can be a holiday color, then pick appropriate button colors.

    I used a scallop punch to punch out my sentiment but you can also stamp a little message or use a sticker that says Merry Christmas.
