I have all these 12" x 1" scraps since I had to cut some 12 x 12 paper down to 8.5 x 11 to make labels for all that fiber I dyed. I decided to use them for something. I took stamp pads and added ink to the pieces and then woven them together. I then glued the woven piece to a piece of card stock for some stability. I now have a beautiful background to use for some future project. That was sure fun. I feel energized to do other things now. If your're feeling low just go play with paper, it will lift your spirits.
