Plant A Seed of Kindness!

Riley BeanstalkScrapling wm
Hi everyone!

It’s challenge time again over on the Riley and Company blog. This week our challenge hostess is mwah!

I revisited the 'scrapling' during the Riley and Company Fairy tale release ... my Robin Hood card. It had been ages since I created one of these and they are fun to create and make use of those scraps we get when we make square card from a full sheet of card. So this week’s challenge let's make "scraplings".

In case you haven't made these before here is some info I posted on my blog a few years back ......
Scraplings are normally 1.25" x 4.25" because they are often made from the off cuts you get when you make a square card (4.25" square) from a piece of card that is 4.25" x 5.5". However if you are like me your scraplings may be a little wider depending on what you are working on at the time. Now for me 1.25" is way too narrow and I normally have wider card then that left over so you can makes yours wider .... BUT for this challenge they cannot be any wider then 2.5 inches that is for the base of the scrapling ... you can have wider pieces hanging off like I did with my scrapling above, that is up to you .... as long as they are no wider then 2.5 inches.

For my scrapling this week I used the Riley and the Beanstalk image, I so love this little cutie! I added clouds to the bottom of the beanstalk so it appears that the beanstalk is coming up through the clouds.

Here is the inside of my scrapling, I love the sentiments from the Life is A Fairy Tale Word Set which is what I used for both sentiments inside and out.
