6th Week of Halloween – Wrapping it up with scraps!

Scraps…  They are a joy and a pain all at the same time.  When you don't have any, you stare at that huge 8-1/2″ x 11″ pristine piece of card stock and hate to use it to punch out a 1″ circle, right?  When you do have them, you have to store them, which can be a pain.

But what about the extras?  The pieces you stamped and punched and didn't use on a project?  What about left over ribbon and lace?  Or the random button?

That is what this week's project is all about.

All throughout the Halloween creative season as I call it, I kept a baggie for these types of items.  From projects where I initially stamped on Pumpkin Pie card stock and then wanted to use Tangerine Tango – like all the “rejects” that were too good for the trash bin.

A quick trip to the dollar store provided me with salt and pepper shakers.  I looked for the ones that had the lid like below.  Some wire and wire cutter and I was off to the races.





Then it was time to really look through my scraps and decide what was best where.  I hit the total jackpot on having my fence and tree wrap around the base of my shaker perfectly.
