FIRST THINGS FIRST - sort out your papers into colour themes. 

Punch out squares using a square punch - (I used a 2" for the blue and pink card and a 1 1/2" for the little brown card).  Place pieces together to create a patchwork. 

TOP TIP -I find using the sheet of double-sided adhesive is very useful at this stage, and if you remove the plain backing and leave the grid backing -it helps you with your placement - very easy to do!  

The lavender card and the Thinking of you (browny) card was just piecing together patches of squares and rectangles randomly.  The double sided sheet helped again with placement  and keeping the corners square!  

This was a great way to create some pretty cards and use up a load of papers I had accumulated!  The customers at my demo were very happy and even brought in some of their own creations to show me. 

TO FINISH - Just add a few Peel-off borders/lines, flowers, buttons or ribbons with messages of your choice.
