Are you someone who hangs onto every teeny-tiny piece of cardstock or patterned paper, or do you toss them in the trash like yesterday’s news?

Someone once told me that if they could use a scrap to punch a 1″ shape, then it was worth saving. Well, I don’t know about that! I’d have truckloads of little squares of paper scraps if that were the case! But I DO know that if I have a favorite patterned paper, and it is at least 4″ x 4″, it is a keeper. To me, that is just enough to make all sorts of cute embellishments. Punch a hole in the top, tie it up with a pretty ribbon and you’ve got yourself a tag!

Let’s see what the Design Team has created out of scraps. I just know they’ll inspire you to take a second look at those leftover bits you’ve been hanging onto!
