Day 11 - Patchwork Cards

"Patchwork" or "quilt" cards are another great way to use up some of those little scraps of paper you've been saving.  The easiest way to make them is to cut out lots of strips, squares or triangles of patterned paper using dies or punches, then assemble them on pieces of cardstock.  When you're happy with the arrangement, adhere them in place with some double sided tape or glue and add some embellishments to finish off your card.
 

YOUR TURN: Use some squares, strips or triangles of patterned paper to create a patchwork card.
