I am a frugal crafter to say the least and I hate to throw away any scraps left from a project. I am constantly looking for ways to use up even the smallest pieces left over. Hopefully this project will show you that what you once thought was scraps can be transformed into something beautiful.

Step 1: Initial Project

The scraps in this project were generated from a Christmas Pennant Banner. I had a group of very cute owl gift tags that I did not want tossed in the trash after being attached to a gift. I used a discarded book to make the pennants and was left with the remainder of the page for scraps.

To make the 3D Scrap Garlands you will need some additional basic supplies.

Materials needed:

  • Scrap paper from previous project
  • Sewing Machine
  • Thread
  • Paper Punches (I used various sized hearts)
  • Ink pads in one color family
  • Baby wipes
  • Narrow Ribbon
