From scrapbook pages and cards to decorated tins, pails, sarabinders™ and more, Use 'Em for Anything papers, monograms, silk flowers and brads really can be used for anything! Here, Susan shares her latest page creation using Use 'Em for Anything Chocolate. Designer projects are quick and easy when everything coordinates!
- Use the black medallion paper as the background. Ink the edges of an 8"x7 1/2" piece of brown cardstock. Mat on white cardstock, trimming the mat to 1/8".
- Ink the edges of a 5"x7" photo, then glue the photo to the left side of the brown cardstock. Ink the edges of a white initial monogram and write the name on the initial in black. Attach the monogram in the top right corner of the brown cardstock with two brown brads. Journal below the monogram with a white pen. Attach the cardstock centered at the top of the page, leaving the left edge unglued.
- Fold three 4" grosgrain ribbon lengths (two white and one black) in half. Tucking the folded ends under the unglued left edge of the matted brown cardstock, attach the ribbons to the page with brown brads.
- Layer three silk flowers and attach them in the bottom right corner of the black cardstock with a brown brad in the center.
- Computer journal the subjects' names on white cardstock, crop and ink the edges. Mat the names on brown cardstock, trim to 1/8" and ink the edges. Fold 1" of white grosgrain ribbon in half and secure the loose ends behind the left edge of the matted names. Glue the names overlapping the bottom of the photo.
- Computer journal a horizontal block on white cardstock, crop and ink the edges. Mat on brown cardstock, trim to 1/8" and ink the edges. Glue the journaling below the photo.
