More Recycling Ideas

Happy Monday! Thanks for the fun comments on my ribbon organization idea. I hope it helps some of you get organized. So my tip today is a way to use up some scraps that you might have laying around.Check out the background of this new card.

There are times that I want to take something with me to do but I can't drag all my paper crafting "stuff" with me. So I have a Ziploc bag of scraps that I've cut into various size strips and I glue them to a backing to make some fun backgrounds for cards. Sometimes I do them by color or theme (like animal prints) or sometimes it's just a mixture of fun patterns. So this is just one of those fun background patterns. I colored the digital image with Bic markers. I'm sorry, I don't remember where I got this image so if you know please let me know so I can give proper credit. I used Eucalyptus Stickles to accent the scalloped circle and if you look carefully there are three dots of Stickles on the bottom left corner under my signature. I love making these backgrounds and I have tons of scraps to use up. I'm entering this card into these challenges:
I hope you've had a great start to your week. Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful Tuesday. Hope you will try a background like this. If you do drop me a comment so I can see too.
