Paper Scrap Art

By: Patricia Zapata for A Little Hut

With a few paper scraps and some glue, you can make a variety of art pieces, like this Paper Scrap Art piece.  This cheap artwork design is unique and modern and can be customized to look however you'd like.  Now you don't have to feel bad about saving all those paper scraps!  This is also a great way to recycle greeting cards.

Paper Scrap Art


  • 2 - 5.5” squares of white card stock
  • Paper trimmer or scissors (craft knife and metal ruler would work too)
  • Three contrasting colors of scraps
  • Glue
  • Square frame (box frame is optional)



  1. Cut a 5.5” square into 6 strips that are 5.5” wide and approximately 7/8” tall. The strips don’t need to have an exact height measurement.
  2. Cut colored paper strips that are at least 1” tall and of varying widths (from 1/8” to ¼”).
