No Waste Cardboard...
Do you save cardboard? I do and usually I just pile it up with other pieces and leave them for future use. Well that leads me to save and hoard and keep too much stuff. This time I took my little cardboard pieces I got from a nice box of crackers or something and I went straight to my cutting table. First I determine the largest size that I can get. This lot allowed me to end up with three pieces of 4" x 6" which is just right for postcards. I also got three pieces 2.5" x 3.5" which is perfect for ATCs. The last three pieces I got would normally be thrown away. This time I had just the right project for the leftover size of 1.5" x 3.5" pieces.
I was packaging some angels onto folder cards and realized my little cardboard pieces are just right for the little angels ready for mailing and gifting. No Waste! And the bonus of no added piles in my studio. If I can keep up with daily "ephemera" that finds its way into my life then I might be able to actually clear some of the many piles that have accumulated from years of stuff I keep.
So far I am enjoying each and every day of this new year.
I am also praying for safety and warmth for all across our nation who are freezing with unbelievable cold temperatures and frigid conditions.
Creative Bliss my friends...
