So this week at Jingle Belles, we're celebrating Holiday Leftovers. We're asking you to create a card using all of those little leftover pieces of paper, alphabet letters, stickers, ribbon ... you know, those things you save because they're just too cute to throw away.
Here's what we created with our leftovers:
Lauren says, "i'm always inspired by the cool techniques quilters use to make amazing art from scraps, and i often lift & interpret sewing ideas on my cards. this time i went completely literally and made a small paper version of a string pieced quilt, using nothing but tiny strips of paper from my scrap box. there's a little step-by-step illustration... and a second card made with this method... on my blog!"
Stephanie says, "I used my paper scraps from Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers to create a card using the Paper Bargello Technique (my tutorial here). I remember the first time I saw this technique on the Carol Duval show many years ago and was completely fascinated by the effect. Once I finished my card front, all I needed was a chipboard sticker with some ribbon to finish the design.
So go forth and find those neglected leftovers and turn them into a holiday masterpiece ... we can't wait to see what you create. InLinkz will be open until 6pm EST next Wednesday, July 13th. keyword for galleries or the jingle belles flickr group is JB28.
