What are scraplings?  They are tiny cards, 4.25 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide, made from scraps!  I am participating in a scraplings swap and have just sent off the two I made. Can't wait to see what I receive back!

By cutting a piece of cardstock (scraps, remember) 8.5 x 1.5 inches and then folding it in half, you have the base of your tiny scrapling.

On this first one, I stamped a favorite friend sentiment on a scrap of new Hero Arts printed paper (a sample I picked up at CHA), colored the flower and attached it to the front of a blue cardstock base.  Since the scrap wasn't quite long enough, I added a strip of scalloped adhesive (not sure what this is called - it's very old!) and added some beautiful  PK Glitz glitter. Done!

For the second one, I added Distress Inks directly to a cream-colored textured cardstock scrap and misted lightly with water to blend the colors. I then stamped a portion of a detailed stamp with Staz On and added a small quote.

These are quick and easy to whip up and are great for trades or swaps.  They could be used for tags for small gifts or even a cute bookmark.  Try one!
