Time for a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters. This challenge is right up my alley. I had so much fun it was hard to stop. The challenge is to use your scraps. Now I know you all probably have a larger scrap pile than you would like to admit. I am a hoarder and keep everything from small pieces of ribbon to paper. I know that one day I will have a use for it! LOL For this challenge I decided to make bookmarks. It was super easy to do and a flipping great way to use up those scraps. I cut a bunch of cardstock to 2x6. This is a great way to cut up your solid card stock and get rid of it. I used all one color in the pictures. I had other colors cut but ran out of time and figured the 50 I had was a bit over the top anyway! I then sat down with my vase of scrap ribbons and went to town attaching whatever ribbon matched the paper. And on each card they are tied in various ways, whatever the length of ribbon I had allowed. Now there is a funny story along with these. After I was like a machine cutting my scraps down to size I was on cloud 9! I felt like I was purging and it felt so good to use this stuff up.
Well I must of been going to quickly on some of them and on one of my hands I had 4 large paper cuts and on the other I had about 3. I had to rush from that to the dentist then straight for blood work. As I walk up to the check-in counter I pumped some antibacterial gel onto my hands...WELL LET ME TELL YOU I think she thought I was on crack, drunk or just plain strange. My mouth was all slanted from the Novacaine and barely open by eyes from the migraine. I can only imagine what she was thinking once that Antibacterial wash hit those papercuts. I looked like a Mexican Jumping bean that was ready to pass out once I stopped hopping around. So yep using your scraps up feels good but comes with a price!! LOL
I hope you join in and hop up on the USE YOUR SCRAPS UP wagon and come along and have some fun with us!
