What To Do When Scrap Happens

I've never really been all the into scrapbooking or card making, but somehow I end up with tons of paper scraps left over from decoupage projects. I hate to just throw all that pretty paper away! 

I was going through my library of silhouette shapes the other day and realized that I had a downloaded a free shape that was a template to make bows for gift wrapping... which made me think of my growing pile of paper scraps...

So cute, right? 

I cut out the pieces with my Silhouette machine, than mixed and matched the patterns. I used a brad to secure the pieces together. 

I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing to use these for, but I think they would make a great little addition to any gifts that I need to wrap. 

Has anyone else been working on any stash-busting projects lately? 

I was featured!!!
