Are you one of those crafters who instinctively keeps (or hoards? LOL) ALL scraps of paper? Do you spend time picking out and saving those tiny dime size pieces of paper? You know who you are; it's okay this is a safe environment so you can confess to your addictions and idiosyncrasies here. =) Most of those scraps are usually a little too small to use... well, that was before this tip. =) I'll share with you what I do with those little scraps.
Take those little scraps and punch the flowers out of it. I segregate the flowers in two ziplock bags: designer paper flowers and plain cardstock flowers. Now you have these little flowers on hand any time and in many different colors and designs. So there you have it. Nothing goes to waste!!!
I love flowers, so the Three For You punch is one of my favorite punches. It adds an instant embellishment to gaps in cards. It's fast and easy. I often use it with beads in the center of the flower. In response to Anthonette's question...she asked what I use to attach the beads. I use Tombow white glue. You can find it in your local craft store or in the SU catalog. The tip is fine so you can get a small, precise dab of glue. I also use dimensional glaze (crystal effects) which works great as well.
