When life gives you scraps

It's day 2 of the retreat and I found myself with a lot of scraps at the end of the day.  What do you do with all those scraps of paper? I have several Craft Fairs in the next month so I decided to create some fun Birthday cards with the scraps.  

I started with scraps from the Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper #144125,  Some of the paper I cut into 1" strips and others I punched with the Balloon Bouquet Punch #140609.

Added these elements to some Very Vanilla Cardstock # 101650 and stamped Happy Birthday from the Best Birds Stamp Sets #141525.  A  ribbon bow completes the card.
Here are 3 of the finished cards (ended up with 14 completed cards).

What do you do with your scraps?

  1. Great idea! I have sooooo many scraps I need to use ONLY scraps for awhile and get rid of a few.

  2. As my scrap bins fill I try to find ways to use them up
