If you’re constantly trying to organize your paper scraps, I can help!

I hate to throw anything away, especially paper. I always have paper scraps when I use my Cricut machine or create a craft like this Valentine’s Day Wreath.
If you love crafting with paper, there is a good chance you have lots of paper scraps, which is why I want to share how I organize my paper scraps.
I usually try to keep all of my scrap paper together.
When I organize my paper and cardstock, I can’t stand to have used pieces in full sheets.
I usually toss all my scraps into a drawer and pull them out when they pile up. Then I get the kids to use my punches on the leftover paper, which they enjoy!
After I (or the kids) cut out different shapes, I use my label printer to label small envelopes for each die-cut.
Then I add them to my collection. I bought a small CD organizer a while back, and it works perfectly for holding small envelopes.
You could also use a card organizer, which works excellently using regular-sized envelopes.
Since I already had my Brother P-Touch Label Maker out, I decided to find a use for the leftover party favors I had as well.
The Brother P-Touch label maker is unlike any I have ever owned. It has so many different printing options, and you can buy various labels and ink colors to have a truly customized experience.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so I printed up some Valentine’s Day labels and attached them to the stencils.
The girls will take these to class, along with the Seed Packet Valentines and a few other ideas we have yet to create! The girls were thrilled, so hopefully, these will be a big hit.
If you have any party favors lying around, all you have to do is use your label printer to print your saying and print it twice.
Then attach one to the front and the second label to the back of the first label.
Once you have your labels printed, you may want to grab a second set of hands because attaching the labels to each other can get tricky once you remove the paper backing (they tend to roll up).
