Less is more with scraps

Hi there!

This week Chrissie and Mandy challenge us to use our scraps.

Thinking of what one does with little pieces of fabric that's left over after sewing, I decided to make a paper "quilt".

Sentiment computer generated and printed on card stock first of all.

I used a triangle die to cut my quilt pieces, glued them onto a piece of card stock, trimmed, added the ribbon and buttons.
Used double sided foam tape to position panel on card.

I will however have to make a few more of these to really make an impact on my stash!
