Hello, it’s Virginia here, I hope you are having a wonderful summer! Today I’d like to share with you how I organize my scraps. I’m sure you can all relate to how much scrappers ((heart)) our paper and trying to save it all!
I like to use a hanging file folder system that you can easily find at your office supply store. In my example, I have grouped cardstock scraps by colour in each file. I keep a similar one for pattern paper grouped by manufacturer.
Using this file system I readily see my scraps which encourages and reminds me to sift through it before cutting into a new 12 x 12 piece. A tip, if you grab a scrap out of the file to punch out shapes or alphas, try to utilize the length of the paper keeping it long so that when you file your scrap away again it is still visible in the file.
Have a wonderful day!
