I needed to do something with my scrap mountain. As scraps go, mine are pretty organized but I was still finding it unmanageable. Several of my scrap boxes were stuffed to the point that the lids were bulging. Inside the boxes, was a jumble of different sizes and bits of scraps and many had lingered for far too long. I needed to do something because I was tempted the other day to throw all of it into a giant garbage bag and call it a day.
So this is the before...
I cut and tidied strings and put them on one side of the box. I also cut 2.5", 3", 4" and 5" squares out other scraps and then pressed and folded the larger scraps. So much nicer and so much more user friendly.
I am working through all my scrap boxes. I think I have done about 10 of the boxes. I feel so much better now.
