Do you like patterned paper? Of course! I love paper very much!! So I always want to use a lot of patterned paper on one layout and obviously, I want to use them effectively because of loving them. Now, I would like to share one method with you.
To begin with, make a paper template.
Cut a cardboard (or cardstock) into 7 × 7 inches using your cutting tool. But you can cut it, size and shape； rectangle, circle, as you like. Define the center and divide around it. The more you divide, the more various kinds of paper you can use.
Cut it along the line which you divided or cut patterned paper as you like, using those templates.
Set up them on a simple patterned paper or a cardstock. I moved some them at random and put it, but you can also place them neatly.
Sew the middle of all the pieces with a sewing machine.
Finish off your layout with your favorite embellishments, papers and so on. I used chipboards, wood embellishments, stickers and papers of the floral design that I cut by myself.
