Paper Pumpkin Alternatives – Don’t Throw Out the Scraps!!

Don’t throw out those Paper Pumpkin scraps!!  Look at what you can do.  Use the negative space from your Paper Pumpkin snowflakes to make an awesome card front design.

Wondering where I got the Lost Lagoon Baker’s Twine? I just used a sponge dauber to add color to the Twine that came in the kit.  Easy Peasy :-)

Paper Pumpkin November 2014 Simply Snowflake - Snowflake Negatives

Can you find the scraps in the pic below?  First of all, the letters themselves are scraps from the original tag instructions.  And then, the “holes” in the letters came from the inside of the silver tag reinforcers (top tag) and the tags themselves (bottom tag).
