Scrap That!

Hello everyone, it is Kim here.

What do you do with your paper scraps?
I used to collect them in a box, promising myself that I would use them eventually....yeah, right. I found myself drowning in scraps and ended up throwing boxes of them away.

These days I challenge myself to create a card and/or tag as soon as I finished a project with some of the left over scraps. Right now I am totally addicted to make tags, because you have the best of both worlds with them - either use them to adorn a gift or stick them on a blank card and you have a quick greeting card when you need it.

Here are two examples I created from a few left overs.

What a great idea! I think I will have to start a pile of tags that I can then convert to cards :)
