What can I do with all these scraps?
I have mountains of scraps! I love pretty paper and can't bring my self to throw out the excess when a project is finished. I try to use my scraps whenever possible but they are really piling up! I am proud to report that today's project was made entirely with scraps :-)
I used my SU Fun Flowers die to cut the layers for this bookmark. I layered the flower together and attached a piece of ribon (from my scrap ribbon pile) by punching through everything with my Big Bite and inserting a little green brad. To finish the project off, I punched a one inch circle from the same paper as the largest flower and covered up the prongs that were showing on the back of the bookmark.
You may not be able to see the that each flower was bent slightly between the petals (prior to assembly) to give the flower a more dimensional look. This makes a quick and easy bookmark for yourself or to give as a gift and it is a great way to use up scraps :-)
