Let’s face it…
If you are an active painter, then you would be having a stack of failed paintings hiding somewhere. Similarly, if you are an active crafter, you will definitely have thousands of little scraps left over from the projects you have done. I can not make myself throw away even the tiniest piece of pretty paper… i just can’t.
So what do I do?
I try utilizing them in every way possible. My scrap stash would be the first place I look into to make use of the little bits and pieces. OR …
I make STICKERS!
I make stickers and I make loads of ’em! They are easy to make and add a cute little dimension to my paper crafts. Here’s how I make them.
You will need:
- double sided tape
- paper punches
All you need to do is stick the tape onto the back side of the scrapbook paper like shown below.
rub it a bit to make sure the adhesive sticks properly. You can use a wider tape for bigger punches.
Now turn it over and punch out the shapes. It’s THAT easy!
you can also fussy cut out the shapes from the scrap book paper if it has any.
Now here is how I used my stickers 🙂
This is a 5 x 4 inch card that I made using the scrapbook paper from my stash. I added a little glitter to the panel on the left. The strip in gold, the little hearts and the butterfly are all stickers that I made using the technique above.
And that’s it!
I hope you try making your own stickers…oh! and you can use them in your planners too… 😀 how cool is that!
Till next time…
Have a creative day!
