Using Scrap Paper

Do you have a lot of scrap paper left over from things you cut? 
Do you hate to waste paper as much as I do?
Then let me show you an idea I use to get the most from some of my scrap paper.

Here is a pile sitting on my table leftover from the cricut machine cuttings.

Here is what just one sheet looks like with lots of spaces of usuable paper, now I know you are thinking just throw it away Dawn. But wait you will see it is usable.
Here is a small sampling of some of my punches, yes I have many more.These are the ones I have on the wall that are handy to reach for everyone.

This is what I do with those scrap sheets, what do you think?
I have these inexpensive bead holders from Hobby Lobby that I keep odd colors of several of my favorite punch shapes. All I need to do is go here first before I use a new piece of paper and punch,you would be surprised how many times I will find a use for these or someone else will enjoy them.

So do you have a saving idea you use and can share with me? I am always looking to use the supplies I own or save money and get the most out of them


  1. Very clever!!!! I only have two punches! lol, so that wouldn't work for me. I keep all my scraps together in one bag though and when I make cards I go to that bag before I go to new paper.

  2. Oh my gosh Dawn....FANTASTIC idea! I keep scraps......I have bags FULL of them!! I sooooo need to get into my room and reorganize, and this is what I'm going to do...tfs!!

  3. Hi Dawn I am new to your Blog...found you through Pinky and we are soul sisters...I do the very same thing with my scraps...I punch my favorite shapes that are what I call my go to's!!!

    Just love doing this and not having to use a large piece of paper to punch one shape out of!!

    Stop over and say HI!!!

    Wishing you a great day!!! :-)

  4. Thats such a great idea!

    I just cut out the clean off cuts, in rectangles/strips etc and just keep them in a box to use later.

    I'm actually getting quite a collection, I really should try something out. I had the idea of doing like a "patchwork" type papercraft idea. But I dunno.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great idea, Dawn! Thanks for sharing!!!

  6. Great wish I had some cool punches to play with!

  7. I horde my scraps! They are all in a big plastic container thingie. lol
    I love your idea! I may have to do this with some of mine! Thanks!


  8. Light bulb moment!!! Awesome idea Dawn. TFS!!!

  9. I LOVE this idea. It will also clear out my scraps a lot faster. Thanks

  12. Everything about horse betting

    Several states have enacted legislation allowing slot machines and other forms of gaming on-track. Tracks such as Mountaineer have used this additional source of revenue to improve their facilities, increase their purses and upgrade their overall level of racing. This legislation has also made it attractive for casino owners, such as Harrah's, to purchase and operate horse racing venues as a part of their business strategy.

    The breeding, training and racing of horses in many countries is now a significant economic activity as, to a greater extent, is the gambling industry, which is largely supported by it. Exceptional horses can win millions of dollars and make millions more by providing stud services, such as horse breeding. Good quality race horses for example, is only available from few countries and few breeders this adds a great deal to the national income of the country involved.

    Will Barbaro be the next Triple Crown winner? He has the breeding and the talent, but as of this writing twenty horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown only to fail at Belmont. Twenty five more have won two of the three races, but maybe this year...

    Sweetnorthernsaint ridden by Kent Desormeaux was favored to win the Derby, but finished a disappointing seventh by 13 lengths. That though, after a bumped start and being steadied before finally tiring. With a lifetime 3 wins out of 7 starts, all 3 have come this year, and the shorter distance of the Preakness might be more to his liking.

  13. 5.) However, if you are playing very large jackpot games, it is better to play with fewer cards. Huge jackpots attract numerous players and your winning odds are low. Hence, you can make your money last longer by playing few cards. [url=]online games bingo[/url] Online bingo is a game of chance.

    Bingo is a beautiful game of luck, which involves patience, rapid coordination between hearing and searching out the numbers and lots of fun. As with all gambling bingo is totally addictive and you should be careful of its grip on you!
