Easy DIY Paper Crafting

An Easy DIY Craft Idea

I've been wanting to try some paper crafting for awhile now and with a quiet evening last night I tried my hand with this craft. I decided I really enjoy working with paper as a craft! I fashioned two different types of greeting cards and a bookmark. 

I had purchased a box of plain white note cards awhile ago and had tried doing my own drawing, but felt my efforts didn't look good. So, last evening I used scrapbooking paper in various designs that I purchased at A.C.Moore. It was simple to trace the size needed for each side of the card. 

And then it was just a matter of cutting out the rectangle and gluing it to each side of the notecard. The scrapbook paper has two different patterns, one on each side, which gave me great variety in designing the cards.

Here are my results. Pretty aren't they? 

Much prettier than just plain white cards, yes?

I had also purchased some stencils to use for crafting and enjoyed the stencil designs much more than my own drawing!

One of my sisters gave me a large colored pencil set for Christmas with a variety of pencil types. These worked great with the stenciling on the cards!

Leftover scraps of scrapbook paper created a cute bookmark.

I think I've found a new hobby to add to my list of creative fun projects! How about you? What DIY projects have you been working on lately? Hope you'll leave a comment!

Until Next Time,
