This month’s Stamping challenge on KCUK is Offcuts and Eyelets, so when I read about ‘Scraplings’ on the Gingersnap site, I thought it would tie in nicely.

Here are two quick samples I made to try them out.

They’re a great way to use up your card offcuts, especially when you’ve cut a folded A4 card to get a square!  They’d make lovely little thank yous or ‘calling cards’.  I’ll play some more when I get time but now I’m off to see some Red Kites – hopefully – while the weather’s good!
