Holiday Cards with Paper Scraps

I have so many bits and pieces of paper leftover from all my projects and it's so hard for me to throw anything away. I love finding ways to use them. This card is perfect for all your tiny scraps of cardstock. I used my square maker double punch from Creative Memories to make all the squares. Then arranged them in a grid and added a sticker to the middle one. Quick and easy!For the next two cards I used up scraps of Christmas theme paper. Since they all have classic holiday colors it was easy to mix them with my leftover sticker stash. You all know you have random stickers left from a sheet of sticker that you insist on holding on to, just in case. Here's the perfect time to use them.
These are all holiday themed but it's a super simple card design to adapt to any theme you need a quick card for.

I'm running upstairs now to get my scrap paper stash. I don't have one of those square punches though. =( I'll have to wing it I guess. =)

First, thank you for visiting Keeping the Faith and signing up for the pearl bracelet giveaway. I am amazed at the overwhelming response - it's going to take me a month to make return visits to everyone!

Great Idea for the cards! Like you, I have a hard time tossing even those itty bitty scraps. Hmmm...I'm envisioning a tiny card, made with the 1/2" CM square punch!! Wouldn't that make a cute gift tag?
