Scrap Box Saturday: How Lucky Am I

Hey everyone!

Happy Saturday! Today is our LAST full day in beautiful Lake Tahoe :( Boo. BUT it has been a FABULOUS week, and the fun isn't over yet! We've still got another week that we'll be spending in Reno before returning home :D

Vacation or not it's time for another Scrap Box Saturday!

Remember these scraps?

Yep, I reached for them once again!

I had seen this awesome idea on Pinterest FOREVER ago and I hadn't gotten around to trying it, until today!

I started out by picking the scraps I wanted to use. Then I cut them into 1/4" strips:

Then I cut a 5 1/4" by 4" piece of cardstock to use as the base (this was also a scrap! I cut it from a card base I had previously cut and stamped on but messed up). Then I applied ATG adhesive to the base and laid out the strips in a pattern:

Once I had all the strips laid out and adhered down I trimmed the long strips:

And TA-DA! And adorable background for ANY card, and a GREAT way to use up my scraps!!
Isn't it pretty? And this can be done with ANY scrap, the littler pieces work great in the corners :)

Check out what I created:

This ADORABLE stamp is the Unity Stamp Company Saying GOOD-BYE is so HARD Itty Bitty. And I wrapped the base with some yummy Totally Kraft Trendy Twine.

Alright sweet friends, I hope you have an AMAZING weekend!!

Big bloggy hugs <3
