Whimsical Winter Scrapbook Pages, torn paper exampleCut an assortment of white papers in 1 1/2″ * 12″ pieces.¬† Be sure to cut at least 2 of each design so you can put one per page.

Hold a strip in one hand, looking at the right side of paper, and then tear one edge of the paper to achieve an uneven snowlike look.

Adhere one of your strips about 1″ off the bottom edge of the page.¬† TIP: Just apply adhesive to the bottom part of the strip so that you can slide in layers later if you wish.

Whimsical Winter Scrapbook pages, lining up snow

Lay the 2nd page of your layout next to the first page and apply the first strip of “snow” by matching up to the side of the first page. (See picture on left)

Continue adhering strips of “snow by placing them a little below the strip above it and then match it up to the 2nd page and repeat until your last strip matches up perfectily with your bottom edge.

Cut out the downloaded pattern pieces and trace onto desired papers and cut out.¬† Matt pictures if you already have them printed and play with layout to make sure you can fit your pictures in where you want them.¬† If you do not have photos yet, you can cut out some 4″ * 6″ matts and place them where photos can go later.

Once you decide on your final layout, you can begin to glue them down.¬† I started with the snowman, make sure you have room for his left arm.¬† I tucked the bottom of my snowman into the 2nd “layer of snow” (That is why I mentioned the TIP above to just apply adhesive to the bottom of the strips ūüôā ) Continue building your snowman with the cutouts and then¬†after deciding where you would like the nose,¬†draw on the eyes and mouth with a marker or using a pencil you can make marks where to poke holes for the brads to go through and create eyes and mouth as I did.¬† After adding the eyes and mouth you can add a few little marks on the nose, small star, and then cut out a 1″ and 1/2″ square¬†for the snowman’s patches.¬† Create your title¬†with your cut out L, S, i, and star. Add little dots to the ends of the letters that your write to give it a whimsical touch.

Complete page 2 starting with the bottom part of your tree, tucking it into a layer of “snow” on the bottom.¬† Finish page with your frames, tree tops, swirls, and star.¬† I offset a 2nd “stitched” star by turning it slightly on the top of the tree with a small piece of dimensional tape.¬† Lastly I added a few brads swirling out from the star and highlighting one of the paper swirls.
