Cupcake Picture Frame: What to do with all that scrap paper?

Ever wonder what to do with all of those scraps of paper you have left lying around after you make all of those pretty little cards?? 

Well, I have one possible solution!

By the way, this is another blog hijacking by Jalisa's hubby. You all asked for more when I hijacked this blog last time and posted the Valentine's Day Card (Click Here to see), so I decided I'd let you see more...

First off, don't forget to participate in the weeklyLINK-UP PARTIES here on Patches of Pink! It goes every Thursday through Sunday. Even I like to see what everyone is creating!

I saw an idea like this over on The Idea Room. I decided that butterflies weren't my thing, but I was sure I could find some really cool punch that Jalisa and I both liked. So off to Walmart we went to pick up a white frame, and then off to Joann's to find a punch. Jalisa even trusted me to go in alone and pick out the punch! Can you believe it? To surprise her I came out with 2 instead of 1!! haha. I got Jalisa a butterfly punch since I knew she would really like that, but I liked the cupcake punch, not to mention that I was feeling creative and I was like, "I could make the cupcake tops be different colors and all of the bottoms the same!"

  1. Place your white or cream cardstock behind your frame matting. Tape it there.
  2. Measure your punch that you are going to use and then measure and mark where you are going to place each punch in each row, etc.
  3. Pick your scraps and start punching!! Watch the paper fly everywhere!
  4. Attach your cute little punch outs to the cardstock with pop dots.
  5. You're done!!
I forgot to take pictures of the process of making the home decor item, so instead I took a picture of the pop dot mess...

Thanks for following my wonderful wife's blog!
