As many paper crafters discover, scraps can be a frustration! Especially the small pieces of your favorite papers that it pains you to throw away. While some of these pieces are still large enough to function as a photo mat or a central element on a future page, often these scraps are much too small! So, what do you do? Throw them away? Or find a new use for them?
For me, that answer is use them! So here are three layout ideas for using up those scraps!
For this layout, I punched and stenciled out hexagons, then paired them with texture paste through that same stencil to create a fun, colorful page!
Another idea, is to layer the scraps behind your photo to make a multi-layered mat or even to add banners underneath your photo:
Or with a grid layout style, you can use small scraps to create a quilt-like background:
Personally, I also like to use my scraps to make DIY embellishments for future layouts as well:
I hope this inspires you to use up your scraps in your crafty endeavors!
