Hi friends! Today we are going to raid the recycling bin and use up some older stash while making 3 cards!
I like to use patterned paper from themed paper stacks. They are a great value but I often end up with a couple stray papers I don’t like very much, namely the black and white papers. Today I’ll show you 3 ways to add color so they can go from drab to fab! Watch the video to see how!

1. Cut cardboard to 3 1/4″ x 4.1/2″ and cover with scrapbook paper using a glue stick to adhere.
2. Stamp trees and birds on the cardboard panels in clear ink and heat emboss with clear detail embossing powder.
3. Ink up the panels with ink pads, markers or Brusho as shown in the video and let air dry.
4. Punch holes along the edge of the panel, insert eyelets if desired and wrap with wire. You can string beads on the wire too if you like.
5. Use heavyweight white cardstock to make A2 card bases and adhere the decorated panels in the center of the folded card base with hot glue.
