DIY Scrap Paper Cards

These cards have been inspired by Erin's Fabric Scrap Cards that she posted about recently on her own blog.
After making the DIY Envelopes a few weeks ago, I realised that the pieces left over would be perfect to make scrap paper cards, and they compliment the envelopes perfectly!
You could make a whole set of these to give to a friend, or personalise them for different people by using old photographs or memorabilia relevant to them.

1. First, collect together all of your scrap paper. I cut some of my strips so that I had pieces of varying widths - don't worry too much about being neat!

2. Take a blank piece of card and fold in half. Decide whether your card will be portrait or landscape, and then start laying out the paper strips to create a combination you're happy with. Once that's done, glue the strips into place.

3. Trim any excess paper from the sides (and keep those strips for a different design on another card!) and that's it, all finished!

We'd love to hear from you if you give this DIY a go - use the hash tag #eightandsixteen to share your photos with us!
