Taking Out The Trash with Jambalaya

This class was inspired by a challenge for using scraps.
You may never throw away another tiny shard of paper!
Strip Card step 1
On adhesive backed paper, lay scrap strips side by side on a diagonal

Bargello Card
Bargello starts out as a strip card, in straight lines. Then cut strips again in opposite direction, and chosing one color, position each strip in steps to form a pattern. Cut off excess and add to top, so whole strip is used on each row.

Scraps from Bargello
When trimming the Bargello strips, there were lots of tiny scraps that the design still showed in. So as not to waste anything, I put them on another piece of adhesive paper and added gold UTEE to imbed the scraps. Heat on a flat skillet, and add clear utee to cover scraps completely.

Lattice Background #3626
I had lots of strips in my scrap basket from trimming down cardstock. I made lattice edges on a lot of them with the large Fiskers edge punches.

Lattice Trash
After punching a lot of Lattice edges, I had this pile of trash leftover from the punch. Too cool to waste, I sprinkled it on adhesive backed paper, then laid it in my skillet, and added clear utee. As that melted, I sprinkled other colors of embossing powders to highlight.

Punch Scraps
After filling a box full of "punchies" for future projects, I still had these odd but cool looking scraps. So I stuck them down on adhesives backed paper.
Scraps Enhanced
Naturally there was a lot of space not covered by scraps. I first poured mini beads on it, then covered with gold embossing powder.
Scrap Card
All the "punchies" were from scraps.
