SCRAPBOOK PAPER: easy ideas to use it
Scrapbook paper is around and plentiful. I have some easy ideas you
can do to use up any you have on hand, so befor you throw that out
consider using it for various projects. Scrapbook paper comes in a
variety of themes & colors.
1. PICTURE FRAME INLAYS, liven up family photos by using them
as the inlay, a great way to add color and tie in pictures with your
home's decor. Simply use the inlay the frame came with or buy one
as a template, cut your scrapbook paper to fit, now frame that pic!
BTW, I used a couple of my Ancestors picture, The Lady is my great great grandmother Philadelphia, Delphia for short. and my Great Great Great grandfather Jonathan B. Lusk,A civil war vet for the union.
2. PAPER DOILIES , its simple to make these like snowflakes
then unfold and place on end tables. Best of all change'em up
when they get dirty or when you change your decor.
3. SILVERWARE TIES doing some entertaining, you might want
to add a lil' pizazz to that, dress up silverware ties by making your
own using scrapbook paper, simply cut in strips, and use
a little transparent tape, goes perfect with those Scrapbook
placemats,as I did in his pic and we discussed on this post:
4. SHELF/DRAWER LINERS if nothing appeals to u at the
store for consider using some Scrapbook paper to line your
silverware drawers. All I did was simply lay two sheets down, that's all.
5. NOTEBOOK BINDER COVERS personalize your childs
school binder by cutting some scrapbook paper to fit and
inserting under the plastic. this allows for their own creativity. They can draw onthe paper NOT the binder changing paper when necessary.
BONUS: if your particularly crafty you can make a Notebook
Folders for that binder and small Gift Bags out of
scrapbook papers. (How-To, to come later)
Many crafty people scrapbook. So if your into scrapbooking,
these are some easy projects to do before you donate it to
a thrift store. A Theme book of scrapbook paper or Cardstock cost as low as $5.00. With one book you cando all of this.
Keep it Easy!
