This is one of my favorite designs since it uses up all these pretty little paper strips we gather while working on pages and other projects. I hate to throw those away but they keep piling up in my boxes. So what better way than to make a card out of them. This one in particular could use for so many occasions. Wedding, Birthday, Get Well, Sympathy...you name it.
- card base 4 1/4"x5 1/2"
- paper strips in different designs and/or cardstock. Mine are all 5" long and the width is 1/2", 3/4", 1 1/2" and 1"
- red cardstock 1 1/2"x 4 1/4"
- white cardstock 1 1/4"x 4 1/4"
- a couple of butterflies
To create this card, simply adhere the strips in the center of your card base. I started with the 1" on the right. I made sure that the space on the top and bottom as well as the side was even. From there just ad one strip at a time.
We stamped the phrases outside and in with charcoal ink. I adhered the white cardstock to the red and raise it with foam dots to mount on the card. Decorate with butterflies and do a little doodling on the inside and this card is done.
Didn't I said it is super easy? Yes, it was and I think it is really pretty too. So get out your paper strips and start making some cards. Remember you can always use the design in vertical and horizontal fashion!
