The Cuttlebug Spot's Confetti Creations!

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we played with confetti!! What a mess that stuff can make huh? Well, not when you make your own with scrap papers, embossing folders and your Cuttlebug!!!

You might remember this little container from a while back - it has been sitting here looking all kinds of lonely on my desk needing something to be done with it.


Well, when we were issued the challenge to make our own confetti I knew exactly what scraps to grab so I could fill my little container! I used several embossing folders on the scraps: Textile, Swiss Dots, Bloom Dots, Houndstooth and Fluerde Lisa!

Here's a pic of my scraps after embossing:


and a pic as I am folding a piece to cut into strips for my confetti:


and my filling in my container:


So, if you are going green - which is kind of hard for us traditional scrappers and card makers, this is a good way to reuse and recycle scraps of paper and use as filler in packages to ship, gifts, etc! The possibilities are endless!

My scrappy mojo is kind of on vacation right now. I'm a bit down and out since my Mom and Dad went back home so I'm not doing too much but I plan to sit down this weekend with my daughter and spend Sunday scrapping all day (hopefully anyways)!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

Karen this is an adorable project!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
