Heather Scott posted a blog entry earlier this week featuring Scraplings. It motivated me to finally get my Toodle Loo Scraplings posted as I've had them made for awhile. Thanks Heather!
I was initially inspired to make Scraplings after I read this article from Hero Arts. It is a great way to use up those scraps. Since then, I have seen posts where they are used for bookmarks, package embellishments, and notes of encouragement. The possibilities are endless! And, of course, Heather shows you how to make a card and scrapling set from the get-go!
In short, start your scraplings with a strip of 1 1/4" x 8 1/2" cardstock. Score at 4 1/4" and fold. Then embellish with stamps, ribbons, floss, brads, and stamping. I used the Toodle Loo tags plus the Tag Tidbits stamp set for these.
Notice the magnet on the inside bottom of the purple Toodle Loo Scraplings shown here. There is another magnet opposite to it on the front inside. These Scraplings will be used on baby gifts. I will slip it over the ribbon on the package and the magnets will keep it secure. It will add a nice, unique touch to the gift! Use the magnets also for bookmarks. Let your imagination run wild with this idea!
Happy Stamping and Scrapping,
