Creative Ways To Use Products by Sara!

Have you noticed how beautifully packaged many of our scrapbook products are? I sometimes find myself drawn to the packaging of products as I walk thought the scrapbook store. I am sure this is a marketing strategy to increase sales but I say the jokes on them because we can use the packaging on our layouts as well as the product! Here I have created a layout using packaging from 3 separate products as an example for you:

This is the front side of the 3 product pages I will be using.

This the back side of the 3 packages.

Here is the final product. First I scalloped the edges of the large polka-dotted packaging for a back ground paper and then I matted my photo on the beautifully decorated Prima flower packaging. (Prima has some of my favorite packaging!) I used my last piece of packaging to make my cupcake wrapper and accented it with some bling.

Now go take a look at what packaging you have in your stash and see how you can use it on your next layout. Visit my blog ( for more examples of using your packaging on layouts.
