simple monday: scrap swatches

scrap swatches

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my Scraps Wall Art piece! I love that it's gotten such a great response. It's even more gratifying since it's one my favorite totally handmade projects—no cutting machine on this one!

To carry on the scraps theme a bit (can you guess what the book was going to be about now?) how about making small swatches of scraps? If you don't have the time or the inclination to make something as big as the project I showed you last week, then make smaller pieces that can be made in few minutes and can be used for cards, tags or as an embellishment for any other type of paper craft (above: offset linear, random, monotone squares, circles in a spiral)

The card
Use a round punch to cut out bits and glue them to a square piece of card stock. Trim the circles that extend over the edges when it's almost completely covered (white negative spaces are interesting too!). Attach the square (or any other shape—how about a flower, a star?) and attach it to the front of a card. Done!

Happy Monday!
