Here are a few of the borders that I made using only scraps and items from my stash.
I glued strips of blue scraps to a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white cardstock and then cut them into 1 1/2 inch strips. Adhered them to a 2 x 12" border. All the punched shapes (including the letters) were found in my container that I hold random punched things. Layered circles to make these cute "flowers" and bird. The bag of jelly beans were from a card candy swap and so were the birthday presents and pinwheel on the "Party" border. These were all made for a Use Your Scraps/Stash swap I signed up for on Splitcoast Stampers.
Love, love, love using scraps!!
