December Daily® 2023 | Ali's Collage Of Squares Foundation Page Idea

Last night I was wanting to do a little clean up here in my office but I got distracted by a simple idea to use a 2 inch punch to create a bunch of squares that could be used as a foundation page in my  December Daily® project. I grabbed my 2x2 inch Passport Punch and got to work punching + gluing squares (using a glue stick - so easy) to a sheet of 8.5 inch x 11 inch piece of cardstock. 

Here's a look at how this came together: 

I used collage papers I've been creating over the last few months for my ornament project. I've shared a couple posts about that project already including my  Starting Place and Creating Layers. I'm still working on making more ornaments and I'll share again when I have more completed. 

For this simple foundation you could use pattern papers, scrap papers from your stash, or even cut up something such as Christmas cards or catalogs that come in the mail. Most likely I'll pair this foundation with a story about making all my collage ornaments this season. 

After I punched, adhered and let it sit overnight I ended up trimming this down to 10 inches x 8 inches. When I use this to support my story in December I'll punch the holes (waiting to punch the holes gives me a little more freedom to make additional decisions during the month.

    I did something similar with patterned paper and zig zag stitched all the “seams” so it has a quilted look. I also have no idea exactly how I am going to use it but love how it looks.

    Fun! I have a smaller (ancient) square punch I might try this for my 6x8 size using pattern paper. Thank you for the inspiration!
