Hi my friends!
Did you have a nice weekend ?
I hope you were able to get out and enjoy some
Oh my goodness!
We are back to wearing masks inside again.
To take my mind off of the silliness of California-
I'm sharing a little scrap project today-
After I have been making cards or a junk journal,
I have many scraps of paper left over.
A snippet roll would be a last effort to use up small pieces of paper.
I always keep a box or tray to corral
all the little bits.
The base of the roll can be anything. I used book pages cut to 2'' wide.
I just start gluing one piece on top of another, as you would
There is no right or wrong placement.
My strip was about 45'' and then I stopped.
I decides to run the roll through the sewing machine,
because I used a lot of card stock.
Here is a few close ups-
I cut a paper towel tube and glued circles on the ends
to make spools.
I used washi tape to attach to roll-
Both sides are interesting!
Add a bit of twine to secure.
Here's anther roll that was not sewn.
You can hang your snippets on a hanger,
I put these strips on a spool.
When you want to use a piece just tear it off the roll!
If you use a piece in the middle just glue the ends back together,
I used some antique lace-
as a base for a tag.
You can have the paper snippet roll ready for when you need to add a little collage
to something you are working on -
In a journal you can work horizontal or vertical.
Glue on edges or pockets.
Use as gift wrap or ribbon.
Make your snippet roll in different colors or themes.
Use cloth and ribbon scraps-
add buttons and charms!
I made this birthday card using a bit of snippet with
a few collage pictures.
I used a simplicity pattern from the 70's and a picture from a children's book.
Here are some rolls in my cubby !
If you make a journal as a gift wouldn't it
be nice to also give a snippet roll to match?
I recommend this project if you need a little help to clean up your craft area!
I was so happy to organize my desk for now :)
