I put together a couple of quick things for St. Patrick's Day by grabbing some paper from my scrap pile, my Silhouette and a bit of the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect.
Got scraps? Line 'em up on your cutting sheet! Just make sure you space out the designs so that you're not cutting across different pieces of paper. I cut a handful of shamrocks from three pieces of scraps.
And here's where I used them:
1) My 2014 Paper Source calendar. A couple of shamrocks and buttons. Ready for my bulletin board.
2) a small burlap canvas. I also used images from Mary Watkin's (PaperScraps) Flickr photostream (thank you Pinterest!), some stick pins and a bit of twine.
You can display these on small stands, add magnets to the back and stick on your fridge, add a small ribbon to the back to hang, or use it as an accent for a wreath.
Here's a tip for using stick pins: take a small piece of foam or pop dot to stick the pins into. Then, cover the foam with an embellishment.
