i like anything i have in my crafting materials i do have

This is a great way to use up old strips of fabric! I can picture using this in a child's scrapbook, using strips of their favorite clothing to border the photos in the scrapbook; this way, their favorite clothes are never outgrown or forgotten! You can also make your young child an Alphabet Scrapbook using these fabric tape strips: each page is one letter of the alphabet and has pictures of all sorts of things that start with that letter. For Blue, you can use blue tape strips; for Red, use red; etc. Thanks for the tip!
