Parts & Pieces: Arctic Bears

Call it the art of upcycling, or call it cost efficiency—but some of the most creative cardmaking you’ll ever do can involve using your leftovers—lovely little scraps that remain from a happy cardmaking session. Don’t throw those bits away! See what you can create with them, instead. 
For these adorable cards we used parts and pieces from the Arctic Bears Bundle, Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper, Cork Specialty Paper, Simply Elegant Trim, and Basic Gray, Basic White, and Smoky Slate Cardstock. We simply cut and angled the paper pieces in different ways to create unique looks. 
Spend an hour or two seeing what you can do with your crafting leftovers! You might like the results so much that you wind up making a stack of upcycled cards to give away to your friends—and maybe even take a class and learn more. With upcycling, there are no rules. Simply have fun and see where your creativity leads!
