What to do with...

...the cardstock that my Cricut die cuts come from? I am always using my Cricut for something and this past week I was putting together swaps to mail out. I created birthday page elements...I had cut the word "birthday" from a page and had about 5 of them in a row...the page had almost been totally filled with the negative spaces where the letters had been. Here is what I created...

How fortunate my youngest daughter was invited to a birthday party this afternoon. I made a 12x12 layyout page for his mom to hang on their wall with pictures from today. I started this a few years back when one of my other daughters went to a birthday party...making something for the parent to remember the day by...I have made explosion boxes, layouts & even small mini books with the theme of the party. I can finally say I have used the entire sheet of paper with this project. :)

What terrific ideas you shared in your post: using the negative of the cut outs and also making a scrap page for the mom!

Awesome idea! I can't believe the amount of paper I've thrown in the scrap bin that could have been turned into a cool scrapbook page. Now I know for next time my cricut is out playing!

Wow- thoughtful and clever at the same time! What a great idea to use your left overs. And what a nice tradition you started by sending a party gift for the birthday child's parents. I am sure it's such a nice surprise for them to receive!

A great layout and a great way to use up the negatives.

I love your idea of giving the parents something to remember the day by.
