I have some chipboard pieces that don’t quite fit in my chipboard storage drawer. They are too long and as a result, they stick out and I am always bumping into them. Last night I finally had enough!
I grabbed one, because honestly I have no idea why I am saving them and not putting them to good use, and this is what I made. I want to call it “Vintage Scraps.” It kind of has a vintage feel to it, and all I did was cover the chipboard in some decorative paper and then without any pre-planning, I just started gluing down all kinds of scraps that I could find on my desk and in my drawers. I gathered up small pieces of ribbon that I was saving (again, I don’t know why I was saving it,) some buttons, some little flowers I had stamped and were left-over from another project…all kinds of stuff.
See that big pink flower? That has been in my drawer for a long time. I’m glad I finally found a home for it.
I hope you like this, because I think I am going to make a TON of these with different themes. It was so much fun. Plus, my girls were really impressed. And we all know how impossible it is to impress teenage girls. 😉
