Junk Journal Beginner Series: Making my own 12x12 paper from scraps: Franken Paper

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Welcome to my blog, thank you for joining me today 😀

I am bringing you another instalment of my new series over on my YouTube channel. It is junk journal series for beginners. I am making 'Fraken' paper today our of scraps. Paper crafting inevitably create scraps. I keep my scraps in quite an logical fashion I think ...I haven't always but have developed a good system now.  I have an old filing drawer system, I have a drawer for my book page/music sheets/map scraps, another for my brown paper scraps and another for my dyed paper scraps. This makes it very easy to tidy up after a craft session, and I know where to look before I use a full sheet or page. 

Fraken paper is paper made fro attaching smaller bits of paper together. It differs from collage because there is no foundation sheet that you are glueing to. This was such a fun process.
