Bargello is a technique that originated with quilting, but it can be done with paper too, using paper strips.

Here's an easy tutorial on it that I found at the Splitcoaststampers site: bargello card technique

For this swap, experiment and make your partner a bargello card. You can keep it simple or add embellishments. Please write a note inside your card to your partner, perhaps a little about your day or whatever you want to write actually. :)

The swap photo was my first creation with this fun technique. If you've joined my paper quilt cards, this is another technique that uses paper strips (and I seem to have a lot of them already pre-cut from making paper quilts).

These are really fun. I made a few more last night. Label sheet paper works really well to lay down your strips for the first step.

I'm itching to try this with washi tape... I had trouble finding enough paper scraps that sort of went together!

I see a new swap in our future, @orneryswife 😉
