Make a Punched Mosaic Background

Make your layout one-of-a-kind using a single punch and several pieces (or scraps) of patterned paper to create a mosaic background design. You'll love how easy it is to create this artistic look on your pages. Just punch several shapes from each pattern and then arrange the pieces to your liking. Fill the entire background to make it more like patterned paper, or leave portions of the cardstock showing, like Kelly Purkey did on her layout, to give it a playful vibe.

Variation: Love to stamp? Give this technique a twist by punching stamped images instead of patterned paper.
