Vintage Page Designs: Patterned Paper Challenge

March 4, 2012

Patterned Paper Challenge

I'm continuing to challenge myself by getting rid of my patterned paper.  This time, I got out my 1" square punch and cut out a mountain of inchies from patterned paper, book pages, candy wrappers (yes, that's a Tootsie Roll wrapper you see in there!) and stamped images etc.



 
I adhered them all to a piece of 12" x 12" plain blue patterned paper to create this large masterboard.  I cut it onto pieces and ran it through my Big Shot with the Stampin' Up! Top Note die (I never tire of that die - although you might get tired of seeing me use it!)

 
I glued the two dies onto neutral card bases and added stamped sentiments.  It didn't take long and used up some of my stash.

If you have a craft room bursting with paper, I hope you'll join me in this challenge - check it out here!

Simply stunning and a great idea. If I were to challenge myself to get rid of my pattern papers, it would take me years on in hie square. Lol. Take care, Gerri

Looks great Ali, you always have such brill ideas, x

Good question, Rinda! I use plain old glue stick, just covering one small area of the base paper at a time with the glue and sticking on the squares. This is preferable to putting the glue on the individual squares because if you do that the corners sometimes lift once it’s dry. If it’s something heavyweight, then I’d probably use liquid white glue (I use tombow).
