Upcycling with bits and pieces of scrap

There is something satisfying about upcycling and using bits and pieces of scrap to create a piece of art. Creative supplies are expensive in the part of the world I live in and I have learned to marry my love for craft with being green.

Check out the following projects I made..


A mini “art” piece using packaging material and bits from the Banana Hammock Yellow Mixed Media Color Kit. Just perfect for using those small pieces of scrap paper!

Here’s another using the tin packaging from American Crafts…I used it as “frame” for the little bits of scrap..

I used the Pink Parts Mixed Media Color Kit and some punchinella.

How have you been using your scraps? Please share!
