I read somewhere recently that someone was recommending, as a way to eliminate clutter in your crafting area, to discard any paper scraps smaller than the size of a card front (basically 5-1/2 x 4-1/4). Are you kidding me? I save small pieces of scraps to use in future paper craft projects where you just need a little piece, especially of my designer paper.
If you're like me, I'll often go experimenting, punching or cutting things out of different colors and designs to see which one I like more. I certainly wouldn't do that if I ended up discarding all the unused pieces once my handmade card was completed!
This card is a perfect example. Everything used on this homemade Christmas card came from my paper scrap collection, leftovers of previous card projects. 🙂 Not too shabby for scraps, huh?
I started with a piece of 5-1/2″ x 7″ Whisper White card stock, folded in half, and then used what scraps I had on hand that I thought would look good for this layout. I'll be honest, I have quite a bit of scraps, so it took a little time! LOL!
The supplies used to make this card can be found below. Just click on a picture for more information or to purchase.
