And so I reached for my "Box O'Manicured Scraps." Manicured, you ask? Well yes . . . it is the scraps from past projects . . . instead of keeping them in a heaping pile, I trim them down to card size. So, I do a scrapbook layout, and the extra pieces get trimmed into card parts . . . a/k/a manicured scraps. Large pieces get trimmed to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" for cards. Then we trim to 4 x 5 1/4" for card fronts, or 4 x 4" for die cuts (which I keep in a separate box), etc. Whatever works. And anything smaller goes into a Bag O'Scraps.
|This is hoarding scraps in an organized fashion!|
And this card will be set aside and sent to Operation Write Home at some point down the road.
I love a little challenge!
