Hello all, I’m sure we’ve all been there getting suck on idea on what to do with that piece of paper that just looks U-G-L-Y; Here are some tips that I have used to get rid of some of my not so nice scraps of paper.
- The easiest thing to do is to cut it up and use it as notes on the page or use it as some sort of embellishment. I find this helpful as if I have a really nice background but it just has too much going on I like to break it up with one of my ugly pieces or in the example below I simply used a plain colour background and then used the brown paper as a boarder for the photos I then suck over the top. This worked well because the not so nice brown suited the theme of dogs and when matched up with the right colour it didn’t look so bad. What are your thoughts?
- Make invites! Yes I know I’ve mentioned invites a few times in my blog but scrapbook paper has many uses and invites is one of the great ones! So you’re thinking EWWW I don’t want to use my ugly paper to send out to my friends! Well here is the tip use it and then embellish the jeebies out of it! I did it with a few of my baby shower invites as they were in the shape of a nappy and I simply added ‘it’s a boy.’ wording to it with a cute baby looking embellishment which then made the paper not look so bad.
Well hope you have enjoyed my handy tips stay tuned for next week as I share a bonus tip!
Enjoy the rest of this week, Lauren.
