Stop Wasting Your Paper Scraps!  Maybe I should have titled this “How To Use That Piece Of Designer Paper You Don’t Love”,  or even “Clean Up Your Craft Room With One Simple Technique”!

You know how it is.  You buy a package of designer paper and love 10 our of  12 pieces.  What do you do with the papers you don’t love?

You also have a pile of scrap papers sitting on your desk that you haven’t organized in a while.  Come on… I know that I’m not the only one!

Here is a fabulous idea for using those pieces that you don’t love as much as the others, use up your scraps and clean up your craft space…use it as confetti to decorate your gift bags!

You can do this by running the paper through your paper shredder!  I love this idea.  This is a great way to use up scraps of paper and to coordinate your gift wrapping to your ribbons and tags!

So simple!

This looks so pretty in a cello bag or sticking out of your gift bag.  It’s just one extra touch that will help you use papers you don’t love or scraps of papers you’re not sure what to do with.

This idea will help you clean up your craft room!  For me, the scrap papers are always sitting in piles on my table and I hate wasting them by throwing them out!

Check out this gift I received on my last evening with the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Training Team:

Stop Wasting Your Paper Scraps!

They gave me a jar of Utah honey and a jar of Utah jam.  This was how it was gift wrapped!  WOW!  So quick and simple.  You have these supplies on hand in your craft room right now.  (If not, you can order them online at!)

I love this idea so much that I plan to get myself a small tabletop paper shredder just for my beautiful paper scraps.  This will even look pretty if you put the papers in a jar on a shelf to have on hand for when you need them!
