For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on a really big project that involves a ton of card stock and 8 packs of the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. Once I had cut all the pieces I needed from the stack, I was left with 28.7 pounds of 3/4″ paper strips. As you can probably guess, my mind immediately started racing about how I could use the leftover the strips of DSP. I don’t want to let these strips go to waste.
Tips, Tricks and Reminders:
- Coordinate your patterns. This paper stack has a lot of really great prints, but they don’t all coordinate well with one another. THESE two filigree patterns, however, are brilliant together. They aren’t matching patterns, but they coordinate well.
- Repeat a simple pattern for a simple appeal. This card is visually appealing because it is based in Lucky Limeade and pops with accents of Cherry Cobbler. I repeated this pattern in the sentiment on the front of the card – based it in Lucky Limeade and added some pops of Cherry Cobbler. Sometimes it’s unintentional, bu it’s most effective when it’s designed that way.

If you can think of any great ways to use the paper strips, please send me a note. I really don’t want these strips to go to waste – and I don’t want them to get trapped in my Bucket of Lost Dreams.
