I love thinking up new ideas on how to re-purpose printables. Take a sheet of printable scrapbook paper + some heart favor tags, for instance - the possibilities are truly endless!
I hate waste also, and have used the off cuts of the paper to embellish some pretty cute Valentine's Cutlery Pockets! Step-by-step below...
* Double-sided tape
* Foam Pads
1) Print the patterned papers onto white A4 paper. I used the 2 prints found in Bird's Party Sweet Valentine's Kit. the cut 2x rectangles measuring 4 inches wide x 10.5 inches tall (10cm x 26.5cm) and 2 more rectangles measuring 4 inch x 7 inch (10cm x 18cm)
2) Apply double-sided tape to 3 sides of the smaller rectangles as shown.
3) Stick the smaller rectangle on top on the taller rectangles on all 3 sides to form a pocket.
4) Embellish the pockets with off cute of the papers, and add a printable heart tag to the front using a foam pad for a nice 3-D effect.
Insert a napkin and cutlery inside each pocket, and display on your Valentine's Table for a super cutesy touch! ♥
