Using Scraps Part III: Borders

You have a million letter stickers missing all the essential letters of the alphabet (a, e, I, o, u and sometimes y, not to mention r, s and t).  How about those scraps of paper or leftover stickers from your last layout project?  Another way to unload the scraps is to make borders.  Borders are a fantastic way to get some scrapbooking done quickly and easily, not to mention dress up your pages!  So, get out those old scraps and make some borders ‘till the cows come home.  Next time you want to catch up on some scrapbooking, you’ll be able to do it in no time at all.

Easy directions:

  1. Go through your supplies and get out all those leftover stickers, letters, die cuts and paper scraps.
  2. Take your leftover paper and cut some down to about 2-3” x 12” (or 8” depending on your scrapbook page dimensions).
  3. Now this part is easy – pick some themes and just use your imagination.  Here are some examples of what I’ve done:

Leftover letter stickers, gravestone cut out of scrap paper, ghost and grass die cut from Silhouette using scraps









About scrapbookeasy

Thank you for visiting my blog! Here's a little about me: I am now a stay-at-home mom courtesy of a little epidemic called "A Bad Economy." It was quite a blessing in disguise because all this new-found free time gave me the opportunity to start an online scrapbooking supply business (you can find us at We are geared toward the busy scrapper and offer easy to use products and kits -- sorry, shameless plug). Scrapbooking is a craft I found, jumped into and became an addict of almost 20 years ago. I love history, so what better way to preserve my own history through this wonderful craft, right? I love to share new things that I learned, discovered or think about with everyone so enjoy!
