So let me ask you, how many keep all the scraps that get off cut in previous makes, and say ‘Can’t throw that away, I’ll use that for something later’? Well I have a ‘Really Useful’ 8 deep draw multicoloured unit that holds just that – scraps! So I gave myself a stern talking to and thought about how I can use those beautiful pieces, and it was also my nephews birthday, so the two came together remarkable well – even if I do say so myself!
I checked out a few blogs but one of my favourites is Laura Bassen – she is a rainbow Queen and she gave me the inspiration and idea to use the scraps.
I was so chuffed when I finished this one, that I made another one!
Items Used –
- Spellbinders – Nestabilities Hexagons
- My Favourite Things – Anything But Basic Birthday Wishes, All About You, You Trio Dies, Handwritten Happiness
I just loved cutting and using those tiny little 5 mm or 1/4″ strips, it was really therapeutic combining them all together and come out with such a striking card!
I hope this inspires you to go rummaging around those scrap draws, you just never know what you will make!
Enjoy the rest of your week.
