Day 24 {Make Madness} – Scrap Paper Storage

Make Madness


Day 24 of Make Madness – Scrap Paper Storage


As I’ve mentioned a few times, I don’t like to waste anything.  If I think I can eek out another something out of a supply, I’ll hang onto it.  Doesn’t matter what it is.

Recently I tackled the task of organizing all my scrap paper from card making and scrapbooking.  I took 8 see-through bins and organized my scraps by color.  Admittedly there are large pieces of paper in these bins, but the bulk of the bits are less than 2-3″.  Some of these bits I punch into tiny shapes and keep for embellishing projects, but the bigger tiny bits I keep for accent pieces.

SUcardstock_2011sep28fI came across this post at Paper Pursuits and decided to organize my tiny scrap bits using a index file drawer.  I found mine at a garage sale awhile back and haven’t found a use for it until now.

Until this evening,

You should punch your tiny bits of paper into dog paws.  I know you have several dog paw punches.
