I’m a scrapbooker…or so I was.
I go through spurts and this is one of those times that I’m not really into it. I have all the supplies (and then some) and have been looking and finding other uses for much of my “stuff”, particularly the scrapbook paper.
I’ve used it for label making around the house:
My Princess has gotten in the New Year organization going on here and wanted some labels for her baskets too.
Flowers cut out of scrapbook paper add color and detail to her room as well.
I’ve used the less desirable scrapbook paper to cut out stencils to make several signs.
|Check out the tutorial for this sign HERE|
The letters for this coat rack are made of scrapbook paper and then just “mod podged” to the sign.
These diy magazine boxes were covered in scrapbook paper too.
|The mod podging of paper on these was not my finest work…but it certainly wasn’t the paper’s fault!|
I’ve been organizing my scrapbook crafting area lately and with all the inspiration out there, I’ve decided that practical is not enough…it has to be pretty too! So, since I’ve been hanging onto my old coffee cans to use in my crafting area, I got busy with the scrapbook paper and covered the cans and made labels for them.
|What a difference a little paper makes!|
|Here’s the coffee can from my coffee corner. I can leave it out all the time and it looks more like a decoration than what it really is!|
Enough about coffee cans (although they too are very versatile).
I found these cork boards at ReStore for $.25 each. I was going to cover them with material and hang them in my craft area but I didn’t have the right material and didn’t want to have to buy any.
So I got the idea to just cover them with scrapbook paper.
They can be considered a wall hanging or used for the purpose intended.
Ok, so how many times did I say scrapbook paper?? Just kidding! Do you have any scrapbook paper projects? I would love to see them!
