I have two 13×13 drawers in my craft room that are full of paper scraps – one is for colored cardstock and one is for patterned paper. If I don’t keep them together in these drawers they get lost and then I never use them. Since scrapbooking is not a “green” hobby, I try to use as many scraps as possible when I’m making a project. The thing I use scraps the most for is card making.
A couple of weeks ago I realized that I needed to make a birthday card and get it in the mail quickly. It needed to be a certain color scheme, so I pulled out the patterned paper scrap drawer and started digging. I found the exact colors I needed and got to work. I was able to make the entire card just using scraps. No new scrapbook paper was harmed in the making of this card! I actually liked the card so much that I rotated the design counter clockwise 90 degrees and made the card again for someone else.
Supplies used: Patterned paper – Kimberly Polson, Premade card, Fiskars threading water border punch.
