Quilt Scraps

This is my post going live today at
Pop on over and check out our challenge we have going on,
you can find it HERE!

Hello Classy Friends!
If you are like me you probably have lots of "scrap" pieces of paper
laying around from previous projects and are thinking of ways to use them!

I have been very Pinterest inspired lately and saw the details for this card
there.  I had created one of these several years ago and it appealed to me
so much, I decided to re-create another one.  Plus the fact it is a wonderful
way to use up some of those scraps!!.

I have heard this design called Faux Pinwheel and Quilt Card.
I guess either name would work, your choice!

First, I embossed a piece of creamy card stock using Craft Too Mini Fans embossing folder.
Then using a 1 1/4" square punch,
I punched eight squares using some of my left over scraps pieces from

Each square was adhered to the other using Scor-Tape 1/4"
and then the entire piece was popped up using JOY! Foam Pads Small.
I added a brad to the center of the piece,
and a sentiment from a Flourishes set I had on hand.

I encourage you to give this card a try and use up some of those scrap pieces
YOU have on hand.  I hope you get Pinterest inspired and visit the
Classy Cards 'n Such Pinterest board.  We have lots of beautiful ideas for you there!

A very quick visit Diane, we've had no internet the last few days and sounds like it's going to be off again for server maintenance but just wanted to check on your latest makes and say hello.

Ha! I was looking at this and thinking it's almost like a flat pinwheel, and then I read what you wrote. It's so cute! Two great ideas mixed together -- the pinwheel and the quilt. I love it!
