Love this technique.  Have lots of scraps, to use up so will get busy cutting I/2 inch strips.

Thanks for the great background.  Incidentally, paper towels and  toilet paper never runs

out at my house, either. In some ways we have the same mind. Thanks!

This is really a fun technique, Gina!  And so easy!  Just whipped out a card in just a few minutes and am on to the next one!  Will probably make a whole set.  So versatile, too.  Thanks again for keeping us inspired.

I have so many scraps. Thank you for this idea.

I have been making cards for years using this technique but not leaving the spaces between the strips:  Love It!!

Sometimes I use an embossing folder to give the finished piece a little dimension.  Also, I will keep a piece of cardstock covered with adhesive (through Xyron) on my work table and as I am making cards, I will attach the leftover strips/pieces then.

Also, I will sometimes cut these paper strip pieces with dies (birds, butterflies, etc.) for really interesting and unique layers for cards, using the positive and the negative....never throw anything away  :-)

Thank you for this new twist....can't wait to go to my craft room!!!

What a great card and technique! It is such a creative way to use all those scraps we just couldn't throw away. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Such a cheery card Gina.  I've been using strips like that for a long time, but haven't done one in a while, you just inspired me to do some more.  Your 6x6 pads are so perfect for these.

Gina I love this card. Thank you for the idea of using scrap paper that we have. I am going to do this card.

I LOVE what you've done, using scrap strips! I have a ton on these that I didn't want to toss. Thanks for a terrific idea!
