Got scraps? File it!
For my 3T's (tips, tricks, and techniques) post at Scrapbook and Card's Today I wanted to share how I organize my scraps. I use a file box (regular file size) readily found at any office supply store and file my cardstock scraps by colour. You could also use this same type of system for pattern paper eg. you could organize by manufacturer or theme.
One further tip, when you pull out a scrap to punch out a shape, leave the negative in the scrap, ie. don't trim down the length because if it's too short then it's harder to see the scrap piece when you file it away again.
