Scraps~use your scraps
I have drawers full of scraps of paper. One of the nice things about die cutting is that you can use these scraps to cut smaller die cuts or pieces of larger ones. They can become butterflies, birds, or umbrellas. You can use scraps for paper piecing and backgrounds. The team at DOUBLE D CHALLENGE BLOG at will give you some amazing ideas for using your scraps. Here is the fun Mood Board Diane created for us.
I used an old die from MFT. I think it was called chicken wire. I cut the die in white paper then cut several small scraps of pattern paper until I had enough parts to inlay inside the white die.
