creative memories + paper ribbon strips

One of my favorite techniques for card making and scrapbooking is to use strips of paper, ribbon, or trim to create a design element on the project. It's not only a great way to use up scraps, but it's easy and always looks cool in my opinion. Here's a Christmas card I made using Creative Memories brand new Nordic Christmas collection.

 I trimmed strips of patterned paper and die cut paper ribbon (self-adhesive too) in graduated sizes to create a tree shape. Then I punched some sparkle shapes with the Creative Memories sparkle maker to create the star at the top.  Easy!  Try incorporating paper, ribbon, or trim strips on your next project.
