IACW - Scrap that!

Here's my post from It's A Creative World this week:

When I filled 2 x 10 inch deep drawers with scraps I decided it was time to take the bull by the horns and do something. I had been saving them all to use for die-cutting but since I sold my manual die-cutters I don't use my scraps.

I started by going through and making the largest card possible in varying sizes including 6" x 4", 5" x 5", 4" x4", 5.5" x 3.5" and 3" x 3".

I then used the leftover "scrap scraps" to cut a pile of tags in varying sizes to use for scrapbook journalling, making mini tag books, using as card toppers or tags for presents.

So far I have only been through the red, orange, yellow, green and blue in just one drawer so I still have a way to go LOL!

Oh my gosh...I thought I was the only one who does this...who knew? I can't throw the scraps away, so I also punch out shapes from scraps and use them for tags or embellies! Isn't great to feel a little organized? Great post!
