I learned something new! While reading the new challenge on the Riley and Company blog, I saw that the challenge was "Scraplings". I had no idea what that meant so fortunately they provided this description:
So what are scraplings???? 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 your scrapling if you like, but that is up to you.
I thought that was pretty cool, especially since I end up with so many scraps of paper that exact size! My scrapling uses Count DracuRiley, colored with Copics, some bat paper I have had for a while, some baker's twine gifted to me by my friend Jennifer, and some mini red brads.
Fun challenge and I know I will be making more of these.
