Scrap presents


   Like most crafters I am reluctant to throw any scraps away and consequently I have a growing mountain. For this card I used some of those scraps cutting them into diamond shapes and combining these to make wrapped parcels. (Each parcel is glued onto a scrap of card). Using trimmings from my scrap mountain I cut these to form the parcel ties. The background paper was printed using My Craft Studio's volume 9 CD ROM from the Papercraft Library collection and is matted onto mirri and white card. I added a fussy cut dog and name tags, cut from scraps of course, to complete the design.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
