Make/Decorate Cards with Scrap Paper

Making your own cards is such an awesome way to inspire someone, cheer someone up or simply let them know your thinking about them. Everyone loves to receive a card and if your like me you probably have tons of scraps somewhere.

What better way to use them up than to make cards!  I try not to throw anything I can use in a later project away, which means I am always looking for ways to use up old scraps of paper!  I made a bunch of inspirational cards last year, it was really fun, and it was a great way to use odd scraps.

Here are a few ideas to get those creative juices flowin’!
