Waste not, want not

I don't believe in wasting, especially craft supplies. Even though you can usually catch scrapbook paper on sale, if not its only about 0.50 - 2.00 depending what type of paper you buy. I have a drawer full of scraps of paper to use for small projects or embellishments.

After punching circles out I used a whole punch to make my own confetti for a baby shower I'm decorating for as I mentioned in my previous post. Silly? Maybe but I'm happy lol.

Being resourceful

Decorating for a baby shower later this month and the theme is Cute as a Button/polka dots and the color scheme is pink, brown and orange.

The 12x12 on the left came from a pack and it only had 4 sheets so I had to get resourceful and create my own. All it took was finding paper that matched and Hobby Lobby was my go to place. Their paper aisle is inspiring and stocked with many colors and patterns AND that week the papers were 50% off!!! Love it :)

I used a 1.5" circle punch and duplicated the pattern. One row I had to improvise because the original sheet's circles are bigger. I am very happy with how it turned out.

Whatcha think of mine on the right?
