A simple way to organize your scraps is by cleaning up the shape of the piece (with a pair of small, sharp scissors like this) and then popping it into a glassine envelope. I taped the envelopes into a new journal so that I can reference the colorful bits for future paper craft projects. (from decor8)
Lastly and most importantly, my color sorted scraps! I would be nothing if it weren't for my scraps! Seriously. I use these for EVERYTHING, and so do my boys! There is no scrap too big or too small for cards, tags, flowers, punching circles or covering a jar... truly, the possibilities for scraps are endless!!!

This is a great idea. Keep things in this clear accordion folder such as fabric swatches, paint colors or whatever for when you are looking to redecorate or just for a wish list...label each section according to room, style etc...

The dividers came from Office Depot and I made the labels for them using card stock and my SU! Round Tab punch." Straight from Barb!
