Challenge #179 - Paper Strips

Hello everyone! Lori here and I am excited to be hosting my first challenge here on the blog this week!

 My challenge for you is to use paper strips on your project. Thin strips or thick strips, a lot of strips or just a few - it's up to you.  We all have lots of paper scraps laying around just begging to be used, so let's put those scraps to use on our projects!
 I stacked my paper strips to create a sort of mat for my photo to sit on.

 Michelle Looi - Tim Holtz paper collection  which I can't bear to part with them, and I made a Christmas card

This challenge was perfect as I recently cleaned out my scrap paper bin. 
I found all these strips/borders/cutoffs, so used them to create this background 
for a page about DGS's 1st school pic.

This challenge allowed me to use up some scraps from a recent kit that I put together.
I used a sketch, like I usually do, as a starting point.

For this Challenge I created a card with paper strips of Black and White Designer Paper from Ki Paper Pad and some embellishments that I made using Makin's Clay in two different tones. A CAS model that I love!


For this challenge, I used several bright strips to make a background patterned paper to highlight the bright colors that I used in my coloring.


I love using up scraps so this challenge was perfect!
