I realized the paper scraps were WAY out of control and decided to reduce the pile a little. I took out all the skinny strips and separated coordinating colors and patterns into piles. Then I ran 1/4 sheets of cardstock through the Xyron to apply adhesive to one side.
I used the strips to create striped background and trimmed them to fit card fronts. I used stickers and other handy embellishments to finish them off and ended up with 7 cards.
Why does my scrap bin not look any smaller?
