Use your scraps Collage Card!

I designed these cards for Melanie at Scrappily Ever After using scraps from my stash! She wanted a Back to School theme but you could use this design for any theme. (I will add Halloween, Christmas and Anniversary samples later this week, so check back!)

We all have those flat stickers laying around in our stashes. This design is fast, fun, easy and helpful in getting rid of leftover stickers and scraps to make room for new supplies.

Here is how to make for an A2 (4.25 x 5.5) size card! Use a pre-made White card covered with pattern paper or cut a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock in half and fold!
  • Print a saying out on computer on White Cardstock, then cut into a 3 1/4" x 1/2" strip! Ink Edges!
  • Cut one 4" x 2" on white cardstock and make a collage of themed stickers on it! Ink Edges!
  • Cut 2 mats (you chose color). Make them 4 1/4" x 2 1/4" and 3 1/4" x 3/4"! Ink Edges and place under the white pieces!
  • Cut 2 pieces of ribbon about 2" long each! Fold in half and place under each end of the matted saying! 
  • Punch 2 circles or use Gems, Brads, Flowers .... in the same color as the ribbon! Place in each upper corner!
  • Ink the outside edges of card to finish!
Have some fun making a few Collages (kids can help) and create some cards for OWH this month!  
Remember if using colored cardstock to line the inside with paper for writing space!


  1. Great tutorial, Veronica! Thanks so much. I had used your pic on my blog this morning and left a link to you (your post must not have been up yet), so since your card is displayed here I edited the post on Scrappily Ever After. This is a GREAT card!

  2. I like that you gave the "how to" I love when I can get instructions on how these awesome cards are made!

  3. Very cute cards! I enjoy any tips on using scraps since I save just about everything!

  4. Hi Veronica...I can't believe I just made it here. I love the blog. You are a wonder woman to have made 50 cards this month! I know they will be appreciated since they are so great looking! Your Christmas bulbs are wonderful, that gold really sets it off.

  5. How cute! and I also love it when people feel like they can share the directions!


  6. Great back to school cards and thanks for the directions.


I really appreciate any comments left, good or bad, as they help me grow and brighten up my day. Thanks for visiting my blog!
