Quilt card from paper scraps

I cut a 12cm square of printer paper & found the centre by drawing lines diagonal to diagonal.  Using temporary adhesive I stuck a 3cm square of card in the centre.

I cut 4 strips of paper 4.5cm long by 1.5cm wide.  The edges were sponged with brown ink to give them definition. They were stuck around the centre, making sure the edges lined up by using a ruler as shown.  The centre square was then removed so I could use a brayer to ensure everything was adhered properly.

The next strips were 7.5cm long, & then as long as was needed to go across the paper.

Turning the quilted piece over, I scored along the original edge of the 12cm square, then folded the excess over & stuck it down.

The cardboard square from the centre was covered in paper, stuck in position & finished with a faux button & some twine.

The quilted piece was then matted on to Kraft card & adhered to a 5" square card base. 

Paper used is a digital design,  Love Cherries from Sheri K Designs.
