A big ole pile of SCRAP!!

Okay, I have to admit I am a craft Hoarder!!

I stockpile paper, ribbon and other supplies!
 I can't go into a craft store without buying several things I don't need at the moment just because they are on sale and I might need them someday.
I even save the scraps of paper from other projects because you never know when I am going to need it.
My intention is to make something with all of the extra paper and ribbon - I just haven't gotten around to it - Until now!!!
I have decided that I can't allow myself to buy anything new until I deal with the pile of scrap that has become my craft room!!

First things first -  assemble piles of like paper
Next step - use the pile of scrap to make new beautiful things!!
Let's start with this pretty paper that I used to make these cards several years ago!!

Pretty little pile of scrap:

So I took this paper and some matching solid bluish turquoise paper and I made these:

And I really used up as much of the paper as I possibly could:

So what the heck is it you might ask!?

They are small sets of stationary - perfect for Etsy shop owners!!! 

Set includes:
Business Card Sized envelopes 
Matching little Cards for inside the envelopes
Matching Sticker Seals to close up the envelope

The little envelopes can hold business cards, the little matching notes and more:

Matching Notes: 

Matching Sticker Seals:

I LOVE the way these turned out and I love that I am FINALLY using up all of the scraps that I have been meaning to do something with!!!! 

I made a black and white set too and have tons more coming!!
Stay tuned for more Piles of SCRAP!!! 

Pin It Now!


  1. Too CUTE!!!!

    I use all my scraps too, it becomes an obsession!

  2. You are the "craftiest"!! Now I need to do something along these lines with fabric and yarn! Shell

  3. You did such a great job with these!

    I agree with Judy - my fabric and yarn are beginning to take over.

  4. Love it! I've been doing the same with my yarn lately. I use my stash and only buy new stuff if its for a custom order.
