In a few easy steps I am able to use all my beautiful paper scraps after making a layout or card. One of my favourite things is to roll paper strips, based on quilling to achieve fun effects. This time I made a fun a fabulous card using my left-over paper strips rolled into fun beads and combined with beautiful flowers and velvet leaves on a colourful background.
Cut several paper strips from your patterned papers. I cut mine different widths to achieve slight variations in the height of my beads.
Use a quilling tool to roll the strips into beads and adhere the end of the paper strip to the rolled portion using a small drop of liquid adhesive.
Combine the rolled beads with flowers, leaves, microbeads, diamante and sequins to complete a fun card on a colourful background.
I love how the patterned papers add a subtle effect and colour to this card design. The designs on the paper peak through and add lots of interest showcasing an unusual side of the paper.
