We've had a busy few days. So I don't have any scrapbook pages or project ready to share for Scrapbook Sunday today. But in the past Noelle shared her favorite tools, so I thought I'd share an easy way I combine my scrapbooking punches and old greeting cards to get more use out of them.
Many cards have lovely illustrations and are professionally designed, and we get a lot at our household. I can't keep all of them but don't like to just throw them away. So lately I've been taking them and punching the best parts of the designs out with my scalloped circle and square punches.
Then I let ER use them in collage art projects, use them to decorate new cards that she can send as thank yous, or just play with them. She likes to lay them all out in a row and look at them. Plus then I don't have to buy as many stickers, she can just glue a couple of these on to her papers or in her little notebooks. As many people pointed out in the comment section, they are also great to use as gift tags. I've also seen them used to make mini garlands. I forgot to mention that the first time around. Thanks everyone for the reminders!
