Scrap it up!


So, at 365 Cards today we are to use scraps from 3 types of paper. So, I decided what better way to use my scraps than to create a mosaic. This is the first time I've done this and I learned some lessons the hard way!

1. Put the adhesive on the card base first. Not each little piece of paper.

2. Start in the center, not on the outside. It's easier to cut off the outer edge than to cut

the pieces in the center!

3. Take your time.

So, this is my take on the scrap challenge. The card base is actually a scrap piece that my hubby brought home from work. So, I've even included HIS scraps in this one! Thanks for stopping by!
