    1. Sort your scraps and cut your strips of paper to 1/4". What I like to do is actually cut narrow pieces to this size as I craft. I then put them in envelope as I go and every couple of months I dump out the envelope and make a stack of these backgrounds. The best tool to do this with is a small paper trimmer. Large paper trimmers can make it hard to see 1/4" and it is too difficult to maintain consistent widths and straight edges with scissors.

    crate paper blog (reuse as much of my paper scraps as possible. I'll use my paper punches to punch a shape out of every last little piece of scrap paper. Once my punched shape collection has grown, I sew the paper pieces together and create paper garlands that can be used to wrap around gift boxes! (To keep your garlands nice and neat (and untangled), wrap each one on it's own spool!)
