Idea: Putting Those Scraps To Use

If you are anything like me, you usually find yourself at the end of work session with a pile of odds and ends. I’m going to be honest. I’m not a very good example when it comes to saving scraps, especially paper. It always seems to be more trouble than what it’s worth–and I never actually use what I save. I’m a bit better about saving bits and pieces of embellishments. It’s just too hard to throw a pretty away.

After working on several cards yesterday, I had a few things left on my work table. I started eyeing them for a bit and became determined to do something with them. The key was finding an empty embellishment tin I had been saving. After a few mintues of playing with my pieces, this is what I came up with: a shadowbox/windowbox on which a card can be attached to the back of the box.

The material list for this project:

–empty metal embellishment tin with lid
–scrap decorative paper for shadowbox background
–chipboard butterfly from DCWV
–chipboard flourish from DCWV
–K & Co. Grand Adhesion flower
–miscellaneous flower, stem and bee stickers

So save your miscellaneous pieces and put them to good use!
