Are you "drowning" in scraps like I am?


Just-a-note
 

Hello friends. Are you "drowning" in scraps like I am? *LOL* How about gathering them and creating a fun little "scene" like I did?



Love how paper tearing can add such nice texture [and help salvage odd-shaped scraps]...and googly eyes are always fun!


I also made a dent in my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" cardboard stash by making a pocket folder.:)

Supplies: Basic Grey patterned papers, MT tape, EAD Designs stickers, 7 Gypsies gaffer tape, twine, buttons, ribbon, cardboard, googly eyes.

P/s: Come play along with my guest Hussena's challenge and LESSology Challenge #1: Fun with envelopes!

This pocket folder is a very cool idea. Do you know where I can find a tutorial for it? It would be great to make my kids for our upcoming overseas trip - they could just slot things into the pockets. Great job!
