Hey all! Nicole here to share a few ways to use those card stock scraps you have lying around. After all I can’t be the only one who has a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to my craft supplies 😉 I used the fun bright Pop Tones collection that is currently on sale right now to decorate this birthday gift set.
I started by cutting the bag from 12×12 Basis White Card Stock in 80# cover weight. It’s a great weight without being too heavy. Once the bag was cut out I cut another piece of white card stock that was slightly larger than the cut out in the bag.
Using Helmar Acid Free Glue I glued down the card stock scraps.
Then glued the panel behind the cut out in the gift bag.
I decided to make the flowers and script stand out a little more and took a Zig Millenium fine tipped marker in black and outlined the whole design.
I added trim along the top with strips of card stock and a wide wire ribbon for handles.
Once the little gift bag was finished I decided that a gift just isn’t a gift without a card. I used the same technique with hearts and attached these to my card base.
I finishing the card off with a printed pink label and some enamel dots.
Such a bright and colorful little set! I gave the birthday girl her present yesterday and she was thrilled.
Even better, that very small dent I put in my scraps of card stock. What do you make when your card stock scraps start to pile up?
