If you're a paper crafter, you probably have cardstock scraps! Today's papercrafting tip is a great idea for using cardstock scraps from die cuts in a creative way.
Most of the time I die cut a shape and throw away the “innards”. But one day I thought…could I use them? This technique doesn’t work for all dies, but if it is a relatively recognizable shape, this might be an idea for you!
All I had to do was cut the leaf die in 3 shades of teal. I laid the outline down and used that as a “stencil” to glue the innards. Be very careful not to get any glue on the outline part so you can then lift the outline once dry.
You also can use a heavy item like an acrylic block to keep the stencil in place while you glue down your pieces.
For this next card, I used both the outline and the innards on the same card.

The supply list for these cards is at the bottom of the post. The leaf is a metal die from My Momenta. Kate primarily works with metal dies rather than SVGs. Hope that helps.
This is such a pretty card idea! I think a man would appreciate this card. I wish I could find that leaf die ANYWHERE to purchase! It’s not available.
Thx for the beautiful idea!!
I am a scrap saver!! However, I have not seen anything this lovely made from scraps. I love it.
Great idea! I think I have seen crafters use low tack tape on back of die cut before removing parts and then
pasting them on paper.
Would never have thought of this great idea. Thank you
