I am hosting the monthly Scrap That! challenge for August and my challenge to you is to create any type of project using only one 12x12 sheet of patterned paper or plain cardstock. You can use whatever embellies you wish but the core of the project (layout, card, altered item etc.) must only be made with ONE piece of paper. This challenge is open to ANYONE! You do not need to be a Scrap That! kit subscriber to join our community/forum and participate in our monthly challenges. Please visit us at http://scrapthat.ning.com - we love to make new scrappy friends! You will find this challenge under the Challenges from the DT section with a few simple rules and posting information. This challenge runs from August 3rd to August 17th. I will then randomly draw a winner for a fabulous embellishment prize from Scrap That!
Here you see the components before I put them all together. The handmade flower is a modified elegant ruffle flower from my flower tutorials. Instead of a rose center, I just kept adding smaller ruffled layers in the middle.
Here are more examples of other items that I have recently made with one single sheet of paper and some with handmade flowers:
A kirigami box:
An altered wood frame:
A purse card with gift card holder inside:
I sure hope you play along with the challenge this month! Remember, this challenge runs from August 3rd to August 17th. I will then randomly draw a winner for a fabulous embellishment prize from Scrap That!
With 20 years of business marketing experience, paper art is a natural extension of my work world. After having my last child, I decided not to return to a full-time corporate marketing job so that I could concentrate on raising my 3 children for a while. I started designing in 2009 to fill the void of not working in a creative field anymore. I am addicted to this beautiful art form, even now after 2 decades of creating and returning to part-time work.
