Scrapbook How-to: Make Your Own Flag Accents

Create a rollercoaster background for your layout by creating your journaling in a rolling wave shape, using either a photo-editing or word-processing program. Print the wavy shape on cardstock cut to 8 1/2″ by 12″ (most ink jet printers will accommodate longer paper). Mat the wavy shape with black cardstock on the top and striped patterned paper on the bottom. Finish the look with black paper carts made from hand-cut rectangles and punched circles.

Laina Lamb finished off her One Amazing Day layout from Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Summer Fun & Travel with a multi-color flag title. She cut each flag from a different color of pattern paper.
