How many times do we save snippets of patterned paper or scraps of ribbon for future use and then never get around to using them?!?! I hate to waste anything and I tend to save every little bit. I even save the packaging from my brads and other embellishments. I always have the bright idea that I will convert them to something useful.
I have a lot of leftovers sitting on my desk from last year's creative good wishes. I just never used any of them. If something sits too long, it becomes junk and clutter. I really hate the way that it all looked. So during the last weeks of 2012 and the first days of 2013, I began converting them to useful tags and embellishments. I have realized that I am far more likely to use something if it's ready made.
Small pieces like these are perfect projects to use up your scraps. You get to recycle and have ready made embellishments or journal cards for future layouts.
