It's time to share not only my last technique as a Birds Of A Feather ScrapChick but this is my last reveal as well. :(
So this is a simple technique and I'd actually call it more of a tip...so let's call this Tip Tuesday! Anyways, so many manufacturers are including patterns on the backsides of the paper strips at the bottom of your 12x12 sheets of paper - you know, where they put the company name, collection name, UPC barcode, etc. So, I am showing you a fun way to use those patterned strips up!
First you want to cut those strips off. And this works even if the pattern doesn't extend the full 12x12 length. The Simple Stories I Heart Summer papers found in the August kit and part of the August extra patterned paper only extend 2/3 of the strip but can definitely be used.
So, if you have paper strips that have a pattern covering the whole 12" length, then you just take four strips and adhere one strip to each edge of your layout. If you're dealing with strips that aren't the full 12", then just piece them together like I did. It creates a cool patchwork effect on your page boarder.
There you have it. Super easy and a great way to not waste any supplies and use up those strips!
Thanks so much for checking out my post today and I have to say the past six months as a ScrapChick have been amazing! Thank you Amy for giving me the chance to work with these amazing kits!
