Keep Paper Scraps



Organizing Paper Scraps by Ruslana Zitserman , Kent Ridge, Singapore

If you work a lot with colored wrapping paper (origami, paper covered boxes and picture frames, etc), don't throw out the leftover paper scraps; they might be useful for your next project. If you are afraid that your workplace will soon be covered by a heap of paper, do the following: put all matching scraps into a plain envelope and glue a one piece to the front. This way you will know what's inside without opening the envelope. Then you can organize all the envelopes in hanging files or simply arrange them in a box.

mosiacs for the tiny pieces?


thats a great idea! I saved tiny pieces for a bit for confetti, but thats about it, the rest usually gets vacuumed unless its "usable"


I save my scraps by color in ziploc baggies filed in a plastic shoe box


That is a great idea. I also have scraps of watercolor papers, paintings that "failed". I use them for collage. That means I can sort them like the scrapbooking papers!! What a neat idea! Thanks.


I use an accordian file folder that I got at Staples. (I acutally use 2 of them.)I keep them right next to my large Fiskars cutter. This works well for me.

Great Idea, I do have that problem, of a jumble of scrap papers.... I separated them which made if much easier!


great idea thank you

I use the ziploc type bags also and find this the most useful. I can just glance at the bags to see what I have or what I need. :-)


I have been getting so frustrated with all my scraps, I was ready to throw them out. But this is a fantastic idea. I tried using those plastic sheet protectors, one for each color of paper, but it really doesn't work as well as I would like. Thanks for this tip.
