Scrappy Stripes - Use those bits and pieces!

by Julie Heyer

Create a dramatic background on any card, project, or page with this fun scrappy stripes technique. The Pacific Northwest collection has some beautiful textured papers and I didn't have the heart to throw these strips into the recycling bin.

Scrappy Stripes tutorial

Apply Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator to the back of several 1/4" Pine Linen strips. Adhere the strips diagonally spaced 1/4" apart onto a 4x5-1/4" Moss panel.

Trim ends from longer strips with scissors.

Adhere these partial strips to the remaining areas on the Moss panel.

Flip the Moss panel over and trim away the excess strips flush with the outside edge.

The simple addition of the strips created such a cool striped background. It really made the finished card pop!

Layer a feather hybrid print with an Orchard stencil rubbing wood grain panel. Stamp the Geodes sentiment in Spruce Hybrid Ink onto a torn Sky strip. Adhere the silver leaf charm to the sentiment strip and tie a knot with a sky blue satin ribbon.

Don't overlook those smaller scraps. Sometimes they can be used to create some really interesting backgrounds. Happy Crafting!
