5 Little Scraplings

Here is the "Friday Mashup" Challenge :

Make a project using " Scraps of Pattern Paper or Ribbons ".
Or Make a " Scrapling ".
Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Scrapling using Scraps or Pattern Paper or Ribbons. ".

Here is my answer:

I recently made some dividers for the boxes I keep my cards in.  They needed to be 5 1/2" by 7" which meant I cut off the ends.  I had a number of these 1 1/2" by 11"  scraps which I trimmed to 1 1/2" by 8 1/2" and then folded in half.

I went through my pattern paper scrap folder and came up with these.  The first one, on the left, is sheet music background and I wrote "for you" in brown pen.  The second is an embossed left over that was 1 1/2" wide - it was meant to be (wink).  I rounded the corners just to make it different.

The middle one I attached a punched piece of black to the black and white check.  Believe it or not, the next one is made from the back of the label on a designer paper.  I stamped "Happy Birthday" in the white space.  The last one is a piece of orange that matched the little flowers in the middle.  I didn't even have to trim the flower piece at all.  I stamped "Thanks so much" at the bottom.  This is the little CTMH stamp I got from "She's a Sassy Lady" a while ago when I posted a card on her blog.

I punched a hole and tied matching ribbons on to make gift tags.  They were so much fun - and easy.  Thanks, Friday Mashup for the challenge.
