Sometimes on prize drawings or surveys, crafters are asked what craft tool or supply they absolutely could not live without. I usually say my paper trimmer or my non-stick scissors (and by the way, if you’re still cutting glue dots and duct tape with regular scissors, you just haven’t LIVED)…but lately I think my answer would be my 1″ square paper punch.
Sometimes the easiest way to get rid of paper scraps is to just punch ’em up. Because well, you know, I’m all about crafting with my stash. Punch out shapes to save for future embellishing, or punch square tiles to make one of my all-time favorites – paper mosaics.
I love using a paper mosaic for greeting card panels – so quick and easy to make with nothing more than a glue stick. Place the tiles together side by side, or leave a little space in between to create “grout” or give the look of a windowpane. Add some ribbon and a button and you’re done!
How do you like to use up paper scraps?
