Geometric Scrapbook Paper Table Topper

By:

If you're interested in scrapbook paper craft ideas but aren't the mood to construct a full layout, consider creating a Geometric Scrapbook Paper Table Topper. This sophisticated design looks great on a dining room table or even at a wedding. Luckily, it doesn't take long to construct one of these toppers, so you can make a bunch and use them as decorations for a large event.


 

Materials:

  • 2-3 sheets of 12” X 12” two-sided patterned scrapbook paper
  • Variety of coordinating paper die-cuts – leaves and flowers
  • Tape runner
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft glue
  • Paint marker
  • Paper trimmer
  • Self-adhesive flat-back gems

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut each 12” X 12” sheet of scrapbook paper into 1” strips; cut each strip in half to 1”x6”.
     
  2. Fold each 6” strip almost in half – leave a tab of about 3/8” at one end. Fold half the strips to show one side of the pattern; fold half to show the other side.
     
  3. Apply tape runner adhesive to the tab and fold it over to attach the two ends of the strip together.
     
  4. Pinch the closed strip open and press the two folded edges to each other in the center – crease the new folds and open it up to a square shape, then pinch it slightly in the center to “squash” the square into a diamond shape.
     
  5. Color the edges of each diamond with a paint marker.
     
  6. Arrange the diamonds nested next to each other to make a nice overall pattern, then hot glue the diamonds together, one by one, side by side.  TIP:  Snap a photo of your “draft” to refer to as you’re moving the diamonds around to glue them together.
     
  7. Arrange the paper die-cuts as desired to accent each end of the paper diamond assemblage, then glue in place.
     
  8. Accent the die-cuts with a few flat-back gems.
