Do you love leftovers?

I didn't love leftovers as a kid. In fact, I pretty much hated them. Tasteless, soggy. Just how my Dad liked them. Yuck.

I have felt pretty much the same way about crafting leftovers. Especially, what to do with all those sheets of stickers that have only 1 or 2 pieces used from them? Well, in an effort to be more financially responsible, I decided to make some cards from my leftover stickers.

For the card on the right, I came across a sheet of Winter/Christmas photo stickers. Don't know how long I've had them, but I'm pretty sure it's been a long time. I just started randomly placing them on the card front, letting them hang off the edges of the card. Then I trimmed around the card front and presto! I have a fun collage-type Christmas card. Just add a pretty ribbon and a snowflake punch out of my favorite green cardstock (Old Olive to be exact) and there you have it!

The card on the left was the same idea but I used Christmas word strips to randomly decorate the card front. I trimmed off the excess, die cut two great snowflakes using my Big Shot and used two big red brads that I've had in my stash for years.

Now I love leftovers! If you found this inspiring, and create something new with your leftovers, I'd love for you to share!

The fondest memories are made when gathered around the table.
