How to Make Quilted Pages with Paper Scraps

Got scraps??

I've got a few tips to use your pretty paper scraps on your #biblequiltjournal pages!

I pulled out my stash of pink paper scraps I keep in a pocket sleeve and started laying them on my BQJ page to make some quilt blocks.

I began gluing the papers down, trying to balance out solids and patterns.

I applied glue generously to the scraps, extending them off the page then trimming with scissors.

For the last blank area, I stamped "Love" on white card stock and brushed the edges lightly with a pink ink pad.

I glued the "LOVE" quilt block into place then began adding some wash tape to balance out some of the colors.

As I mentioned in this #zoomchat replay, I can glue a white BQ template down and have a lovely quilted border framing it. Or I can write in some individual scriptures.

I added a card, writing a verse inside it.

With a few more verses, some bold washi tape and stickers, that's a wrap for this quilted page!

This is a fun project to do with a friend or group because you can brainstorm patterns throughout the process.

Hopefully this spurred on some ideas for YOU!
