Hello and thanks for stopping by to check out today’s new papercraft project. I have one and I’m guessing you have one as well. That fantastic drawer or box filled with scraps of paper left over from other projects that we can not discard. My bin is a small plastic container that I pull from daily. I go to the scraps before cutting a fresh piece of cardstock and always have a big smile when a scrap goes to a good use. Today’s project will showcase cardmaking with paper scraps.

Turning scraps into a design
The inspiration for this project began with a partially stamped flower. The flower stamped in Sahara Sand from Better With You stamp set caught my eye and I built the design around just the one flower! All of the flowers are stamped with the “masking” technique, except for the fussy cut flower at the bottom right side of the card. To mask an image, start off by stamping it in the desired position, then add a paper “mask” on top of the image so that any other stamped images appear behind it.
Below is a video for a previous project that explains the masking technique.
Finding another scrap that coordinated, I used the Playful Pennants Framelits set to get the look of a rick-rack design. It was a rectangle to start with and after placing the pointy die in the middle of the scrap, it gave me two pieces to turn back to back and make the design,
