Hello my Clique friends! It is Ali here with you today with the Don't throw me away challenge. I used the Limited Edition Kit|Fairyland|Doodlebug Design kit along with the Pixie and Fairy House Doodle Pops that are currently in the shop for this this layout.
I just started using the packaging that the paper collection comes in. They always have a front cover sheet with the paper pack that shows all the different patterns included in the collection. You can use that sheet to cut borders out of or even back smaller cut files, like I have here. It is a way to save the larger 12 x12 sheets for other layouts. I believe in getting the most out of your money and that includes using the packaging that the items come in.
I had so much fun backing this cut file with the different patterns. This picture was taken on my birthday last year when I just received a special flower delivery from my in-laws. I thought this collection would be perfect with my birthday flowers.
So next time you purchase a collection kit don't throw out the top sheet, use it on your layouts. Also, the backing of the sticker packages and the ephemera packages are fun to use too! You can use them to mat photos or create titles out of the backings.
I hope you enjoyed these little tips and I can't wait to see what you create with your packaging! Happy crafting my friends!
Love, Ali xoxo
