When I put together the Persian Plum kit I received from Books Quilts and Sewing’s giveaway, the first step was to sew a small, neutral-colored square onto a larger colorful solid or floral triangle and then cut the tips off both. This left me with a stack of perfect little triangles, and of course I decided I must do something with them as well! I always keep a stash of blank notecards and some craft glue handy, so here’s what I came up with (adding a tiny strip of one my other remnants for the trunks). I think they’ll become a nice little gift for a friend or family member someday soon! ♥
Love the recycling mode–and so absolutely treerific! It would also be adorable to put these onto a fabric bases (you could use some form of applique) and make a forest (tree quilt).
Ooohhh . . . thank you for the great idea! It would be worth cutting out all those little triangles to make something so pretty. I do love trees! 🙂
Love, love them! Like very cheerful xmas trees!
In another note… I’m drowning in laces over here, will you like some? It’s almost all vintage. I’ll be more than glad to mail it to you 😉 let me know what you think!
Wow!!! Yes!!! That is SO kind of you! Please email me at k_scraper @hotmail.com and I’ll email back my address. THANK YOU!!! 🙂
Cool! I’ll do that later! :))
Hi pillows, thank you for visiting my blog! Your is WONDERFUL, I just signed up, what fun projects you do! 🙂
Thank you for such a lovely compliment! I’m following yours, too! 🙂
Great way to use up the scraps! I’ll have to remember this idea and work it into my cards. 🙂
Yay! I can’t wait to see them! 🙂
Very cute! I am always looking for ideas for using my scraps since I hate to throw anything that could be usable (in my mind) way.
Thank you! I used to make shape pictures with my first graders all the time, and it’s even more fun with fabric! 🙂
Love this idea.i keep all scraps big and small, they’ve all got a purpose.
Thank you! Maybe you can post some “scrappy” idea on your blog for us! 🙂
They are soooo cute!
Thank you! And it only took about ten minutes . . . fun!!! 🙂
Love how you made use of your scraps… Very inspiring idea… Oh by the way, I nominated your for the Very Inspiring blogger award and the One lovely blog award… Congrats! Have a great weekend.
Thank you! And thank you again! You have a lovely weekend too, Jeanna! 🙂
I love these
Thank you!!! So easy, quick, and fun! 🙂
What fun, whimsical little trees! I love this idea for using up the last scraps of favorite fabrics!
Thank you, Karen! I’ll have to try this again sometime! 🙂
I did a similar thing with Xmas paper for Xmas cards. Simple and effective, yours look great
What a great idea! I was thinking of making our own cards this year, so I should do that! Thank you! 🙂
I love love love this! I am so putting this on a “to do” for a Christmas Card, as each year I (we) try to do a homemade version of the Christmas tree. This is a great simple idea and looks so good!
Thank you! I’ve never made my own Christmas cards but I plan to this year, and I think this would be fun! Another blogger suggested holiday scrapbook paper for the triangles . . . that would be so cute, too! I hope to see yours on your blog when the holidays roll around! 🙂
Loving your blog, but I gotta get some sleep, it’s nearly 1am here. I’ll be back in couple of days. Thanks for visiting my blog.
Thank YOU for visiting! 🙂
I am following your creativity. I do personalize scap card from paper and felt and buttons. I love your idea here with the trees. Especially for Christmas. Perhaps you would like to visit my blogs for God.They are very inspirational and encouraging too. Have a blessed day!
I would love to see your cards! And thank you for your links! You’re one busy woman with so many blogs to care for. Blessings to you as well! 🙂
I will post some, I can tell you the ones that people love are the old vintage one. I take cards from back in my grandmother time and dress them up with lace and buttons or cut out the the unique pics. Right now I am making safety pin bracelets for cancer survivors.
Yes, I stay busy with five kids, and a husband, but God has graced me with a passion to create, share and inspire others. I am never overwhelmed through Christ. One day at a time. JOY – Jesus first, Others second, and self last.
Thank you for your time spent in fellowship with me.
Blessings my friend ♥
