I always put my paper back into whatever drawer it came from, but over time the scraps become a bit unruly, bunching up when I open and close the drawer, tearing or creating non-helpful creases across prints and patterns that look much nicer ~without~ the folds.
The three day weekend gave me extra time to solve this problem, using my trusty papercutter, a clear shoebox, and some old drawer dividers:
I trimmed each page, and sorted into ROY G BIV (ish) piles. After separating each pattern with a divider, voila: I now have manageable scraps for future projects.
What an improvement!
How do you keep your fabric, paper, and embellishment scraps in order?
