Stitched Patchwork Paper


National Scrapbooking Day is one week away, so this is the time to get all your materials prepped and ready to go. For starters, think paper.

If you’re like me, you probably have stacks of loner scrapbook sheets or scraps that never fit in with your layouts. If you’re really like me – you won’t even think of tossing them out. So what to do? Create Patchwork Paper! I love this project because it gives new life to your supplies, as well as your scrapbook pages.

You barely need to know how to sew. If you can step on a pedal and hold onto the paper, you’ll be fine. The beauty will come from the contrast – don’t even think about matching colors or designs. The uniformity will come from the way you put them together. For even more spark, use contrasting threads or add sequins or thin ribbon. You can cut the paper in random shapes, or make a quilted or geometric look by using squares. Regardless, it will give new life not only to your materials, but your design techniques, too.


Love & light,
