Cute way to use scraps

Heather Nichols from Papertrey Ink has these cute litte cards posted on her blog HERE. What a great way to use up scraps and help your craft budget! Dig out your punches and see what creations you can come up with. This design would be great using wedding papers or florals for a bridal shower. Don't have two sizes of the same shape? Use coordinating shapes, such as a large flower with smaller leaves, or a larger cake with smaller candles. How about a larger butterfly with smaller flowers? Snowflakes would make cute smas cards, too. The stitching gives these cards a nice finished look-and did you see that the stitching isn't perfect? It just adds to the charm of the card. Now that's my kind of sewing!
