Got Scraps?

Happy Monday ladies..  I want to share a little helpful way to use your scraps.. I for one, hate throwing away good paper and sometimes the pieces can get pretty small.. Well, use some circle punches and create yourself a few hand made flowers for your layout or card.. super simple and quick!!  and best of all, no more throwing away paper and the flowers match your layout perfectly...LOL
here is my design team project for today:

I cut three different size circles, crinkle them up in your hands, punch a small hole in the middle and assemble using a brad for instance for the middle.. I then adhered them to the layout using pop dots..  Plus, I randomly placed some Prima flowers and leaves around them and a couple of ribbon bows..

for a few close ups:

for the hydrangeas, I added pearls to the centers.
 close up of the title: Age Of Innocence..

and for the items used for this project:

few different size circle punches, edge distresser, alphabet stickers, ribbon
and Edge Punch..

there we go ladies.. what a quick and simple way to get a unique look to your layout and no more wasting scraps..
Hope you enjoyed my helpful hint !!
