I am hooked at making this striped paper I learned about at Hanna's site. She has a tutorial on her site on making it so I won't repeat it here.
First I made a page with all sorts of colors.
Then I tried all one color and that was fun too.
Next I tried doing the stripes in a different direction, this works great when your paper scraps are not that long.
Then I tried a red page which was harder since I didn't have that many red scraps. So I just cut off some strips of scrapbook paper that I had.
In all these papers I used all sort of things, scrapbook paper, wallpapers, Tyvek that I had painted, old calenders. Its a great way to use up all those small bits of paper.
So what to do with the paper now, ideas are backgrounds for art journal pages, postcards, greeting cards and more. Also here is a warning once you start making these you won't want to stop...
