Die Cut Your scraps

Do you have a huge collection of scraps that just grows and grows?  Here's another thing you can do with them - especially those plain-colored ones.

Use your cutting dies to create cutting mats, tags, and embellishments for your projects.  It can be wonderful when you need to make something in a hurry to already have a bunch of these ready to use, and it saves you from wasting paper if you create something like this that you actually USE rather than just having a bunch of scraps sitting around in containers somewhere. 

If I'm not going to use mine right away, I store them in drawers with my other embellishments, organized by color.  This makes it quick and easy to find what I need at a later date.

That is an awesome idea!!! I just went through my scraps a couple of weeks ago and threw a bunch away. This would have been perfect for some of them.

Yea, I have a hard time throwing away scraps, but I don't want to just collect them and never use them. This helps.
