Hello dear friends! Back today with the new Riley and Company challenge brought to us by our hostess this week, Frances. Frances gave us a unique and wonderful challenge - one surely ALL of us can not only relate to but can jump on board the challenge with! What could the challenge be?
To use up our scraps! In Frances' own words, she shares this:
So this week let's make "scraplings"
Scraplings are normally 1.25" x 4.25" because they are often made from the off cuts you get when you make a square card (4.25" square) from a piece of card that is 4.25" x 5.5". However if you are like me your scraplings may be a little wider depending on what you are working on at the time. Now for me 1.25" is way too narrow and I normally have wider card then that left over so you can makes yours wider .... BUT for this challenge they cannot be any wider then 2.5 inches that is for the base of the scrapling ... you can have wider pieces hanging off like I did with my scrapling above, that is up to you .... as long as they are no wider then 2.5 inches.
Now doesn't this sound fun! What a terrific way to use up those long scrap edges when cutting a card from a full sheet of cardstock .... creating something cute and with purpose at the same time! Using Popcorn Riley, one of my faves of all times, I created this little scrapling which is actually a book binder marker. It drapes right over the top of the book as a page marker ~ cute and handy!
