Do you save ALL your scraps? Well, I do and I have so many I have to start using them up. If I have a paper collection that I love, I have a really hard time throwing any of it away....even if it's a tiny piece. I store all my scraps from specific collections in Ziploc bags like this one.
Well, the Portrait Collection by Crate Paper is one of my all-time favs! So, of course I have a lot of little scraps. :)
I decided to create a project with my scraps and here's what I came up with. Since I have a ton of little bitty pieces, I decided to create a patchwork quilt or collage piece using the scraps. First, I tore the paper and sorted them into piles.
I then cut a piece of scrap kraft cardstock and put down some glue. I used my Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive for this and it worked great!
I randomly began putting scraps down and covered the cardstock. After it was completely covered, I took it to my paper trimmer and cut it down.
Here's what it looks like:
I then created a card with this cute piece.
....and this is why I save all my little bitty paper scraps.
Thanks for stopping by! I have a great idea for one of my SMASH books and it involves stamps, stay tuned to find out more. :)
