Save Those Patterned Paper Scraps!

But what do you do with those little leftover scraps of patterned paper after you complete your project? I made a video about that! So here you go.... What do you think? Would you try any of these five ideas with a "scrappy sheet"? Let me know in the comments below. Here are a couple of close-ups from the video...

Mix it up using "scrappy sheets" and each card becomes a unique work of art! Thank you for watching my video
