Paula set a fantastic challenge over at Daring Cardmaker's this week;

Scraplings are little narrow cards made from scrap cardstock. You know how when you make a card from a a piece of A4 or Letter sized cardstock you're left with an off-cut? Well that's the basis of a Scrapling. When folded in half, the Scrapling's card front will measure roughly 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" , though this depends of course on the size of card you were making in the first place!

So, dig out your scraps and make either a card or a gift tag!
The team have been having fun using up their off-cuts this week and have come up with all these ideas to get you thinking.

After a few false starts, I eventually made these;

I used;

Paperchase penguins (gift wrapping paper and stickers)
American Crafts papers
Vintage Manuscript
Lace and Scalloped trim from Abakhan
Doodlebug brads
Crafttime Snowflakes
Handstitching and inking

These are such fun cards - they really exude warmth, and a very happy Christmas feel to them.

My goodness, to think that your scraps are that good - makes me wonder what the 'whole' pieces were like.

I love them
