Hello Pebbles’ fans! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today showing you how to create this big snowflake layout with scraps of paper. I love to use my pile of scraps, I save every strip of paper because I think I can use it in my next project. This time I decided to use strips of 6×6 paper to create a statement snowflake for my project.
Create the background with mists. I used pink, teal and gray.
Cut strips of paper from your 6×6 inch paper pad. I used 4 designs and cut my strips 1,25 inch x 0,6 inch. Create your design by attaching diagonal strips to the back of your paper.
I trimmed a bit the smallest pieces of paper, all the other strips are cut the same size, just attach some in the edges of the paper and some in the center.
Run your page through your sewing machine. I sewed the edges and the snowflake.
Mat your photo with different patterned papers to give a little more dimension. Layer some big white snowflakes underneath the picture
Embellish the layout with a few snowflakes and stickers.
I attached my matted photo with foam dots to make it pop. The glittered Thickers matched perfectly with the colors I chose for the layout.
The stitches help the snowflake come together as one piece and not just tiny strips of paper.
I love how this layout turned out! It’s the middle of the summer here in Chile and my son keeps asking me to wear his rain boots everywhere he goes! This was a great way to record that little story.
Do you have a pile of scraps that never ends? Maybe you would like to see this project I made with little scraps of paper.
Have a wonderful week!
