Today is a segment called Thrifty Thursday. And basically it is using up scraps, re-purposing something, or just using up what you have. So, I picked out a bunch of small cuts of patterned paper I had that I could use up. This is the card I came up with.
I used the hot air balloon die and started off cutting one full one. Then, for the rest...I cut them, but then cut the basket part off. Leaving only the balloon. Then, I scored them in half and folded. I glued them to each other, making a fan affect. Then I glued that piece to the first cut that still had the basket attached. I tied a little twine bow on it.
Another view of the balloon. Obviously, this is a tie on or hand delivered card!
I also cut the cartoon clouds and one of the tag dies. Each layer is attached with dimensional adhesives. I also ran the top red layer through the Big Shot using an embossing folder. Added it with dimensionals as well.
The sentiment is stamped on a cut made with the Just Simply Live set. I layered it on a simple rectangle and added it with dimensionals. Glued on a couple sequins as well.
So...you can do a lot with those small bits of paper left from a larger project. Don't toss them out, use them up! Here's a list of the things I used.
