Fun with Sassafras Paper Edges

I seriously love Sassafras papers and have loved them for a long time, but they became a top 5 favorite when they started making their papers with the die cut edges. (A genius idea, in my opinion!). Of course it is fun just to trim them and use as a border, but I wanted to share a few ideas for other ways to use them.

On this layout I used Vintage Yummy, Monstrosity and Sweet Marmalade papers, borders and letter stickers. I love mixing and matching among different collections to get your own unique look.

For the first scalloped strip I simply used it as a bottom border and glued it down so the scallop bumps were just hitting the bottom of my page. Then I trimmed around the edge and you are left with a fun shaped bottom.

Next I trimmed a different edge in half and used it to frame my photo. I think it adds a nice touch and I liked using a softer floral edge as a contrast to my wild eyed daughter's photo LOL!

Finally, I again trimmed an edge into 3 equal parts, made tiny folds (as if I would going to pleat them) and then opened them up and attached a glue dot to each side. These I used as "lines" for my journaling strips. I knew if I pleated them I wouldn't have enough to make 3 lines, but the folding (and then unfolding and only glueing each side) gives them some extra dimension.

Have you been playing with Sassafras edges? Any other ideas for using them. Link them up here--I'd love to see how you use them. And dont forget to check out Posh Designs Scrapbook Store for all your edgy Sassafras goodies!
