Challenge - use up some of my "scraps"

by Brenda
(North Carolina -USA)


Like most, I hate to waste my supplies, so if I cut something out with my Cricut or Cuttlebug, etc. I will use my punches to "use" any left over paper on the sheet (if it's not big enough to save for a tag or something larger).

My problem is I now have envelopes of different shapes, etc.

I challenged myself to make a card using some of the many pieces I had punched. The card came out surprisingly well - just showing that we can use those "scraps" for something useful!

I used 9 of my circles,11 of my small scalloped squares - 2 corner pieces, 1 small strip and one larger piece of white for the background - all from my little extras stash! ;o)

Try it with your little bits and pieces and see what you can come up with! It was a challenge - and a fun one at that!

Christina says ...

Excellent idea and a wonderful way to use up all those bits that we just can't bear to throw away.

I am sure that many a crafter has that box of bits lying in a cupboard somewhere all you need is the imagination to put them all to good use.

Thanks! I used some white scraps recently, making ghosts for Halloween cards. Depends on the size of the scraps - also snowflakes for Christmas! Hope that helps. I use them for stamping too! ;o)

Love the way you have used the scraps into making yet another card. I have lots of white scraps in all shapes and sizes, any ideas how to use them?
