How To Use Up Your Scraps

Hello, G45ers!

  Do you find yourself left with bits and pieces once you are done papercrafting?  Today on the Graphic 45 blog we show you how to take those scraps and turn them into a magical mini album.  This genius tutorial has been brought to us by Brand Ambassador,  Maria Smeshkova for our #G45Technique series.  In this video tutorial Maria uses leftover pieces from our Kaleidoscope and Tropical Travelogue  collections, but the brilliant part is that you could use scraps from any collections.  So grab your papers and play along!


 

DIY Backgrounds from Scraps

By Maria Smeshkova

 

“Hi everyone!

Today I want to show you how to make backgrounds from paper leftovers.

We’ll create a mini album.

 

I used Kaleidoscope, Tropical Travelogue and Sun Kissed paper leftovers.

 

 

I cut triangles, circles and stripes for my backgrounds.

 

 

 

I’m adding some stickers and my album is ready.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tips and Tricks: Use different paper collections for every page.

Love your work. Can you please explain the scoring notation (for example 7 ¼ : ½ | 6 ¼ | ½)? I am not sure what your are saying. Thanks do much
