It's that time again for our annual holiday leftovers challenge! Use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project. We all have plenty of it laying around after all the holiday excitement and this is your chance to incorporate some of those pretty little things into an amazing piece of art!
You know you're addicted to stamping when someone hands you a present and your first though is, "Oooh. That paper would be gorgeous on a card." However, when your second thought is, "YES!! There's at least 6 yards of ribbon." and you start to happy dance in your head, it's time to get help. Or prepare to hop, PTI style.
I created an assymetrical frame using a print from The Girl's Paperie that I used for Christmas cards. The green flower was die cut from a linen textured wrapping paper using Beautiful Blooms #1. I tucked in a few snippets of the gold ribbon from the same gift instead of making real leaves. The final step was to put it all on a Pure Poppy scallop base. Or so I thought.
