I not LOVE all your ideas, but I could quickly get to work and USE the following projects: Wall art (I am currently taking OrgFUNdamentals by Wendy Smedley & Aly Dosdall through BPC, & we are all PURGING anything we don’t love, sorting & organizing our supplies… these can all immediately put to use in my NEW, refreshed, relaxing studio), Memo pads/boxes, & corner book marks (to mark the layouts & storage ideas I LOVE). THANKS so very much for posting all the wonderful ideas for us. I am going to copy & paste your page to our class message board!
Shannon N says
Tough call as there are several I would like to try, but I think the magazine gift bows would be at the top of the list as we have several birthday coming up!
what an awesome giveaway!!! I will do the memo boxes
Carmen Lucero says
I’d love to make the magazine bowl and envelopes. Thanks for the chance to get some crafty goodness!
Dale Anne Potter says
All FABULOUS ideas – I like the Mini Album & the envelopes the most and would do those first. THANKS for all those links Jenny!
Pat Upton says
I love the magazine page bowl! I would start there!
I’d probably attempt the mini album…but then find another one to try…like the map coasters, then halfway through them, I’d go fo the chrysanthemum, because they’re my November birthday flower…
And now we all know why I have such a stash, as well as a pile of unfinished masterpieces. Thanks so much for the great ideas!
Emily H says
These are fabulous ideas! I really want to try some of them. I think the main problem in not using my scraps/stash of paper is not spending enough time creating. Thanks for the inspiration.
Penny H. says
I love the coasters but the corner bookmarks are great ideas too!
Karen Rose says
Thanks for the chance to win!!! I would love to try the magazine bowl, mini cards and the garlands!!! =)
Crystal R. says
Great ideas….. I think I would make some banners and other home decor!!!
I am going to make some magazine gift bows!
Oh man, pick just one?! I’d make the map coasters or the magazine pop art first, depending on my mood.
Jean Bullock says
Scrap paper boxes look interesting to me and I think that bowl idea could be cool!
I would have to start with the mini cards. Thanks for the opportunity to win the paper scraps.
Tamiko McCurry says
All lovely projects.. but the first ones I would be most likely to try would be.. Numbers #7 Paper flowers, #11 map coasters, #15 mini albums, #13 Magazine Pop Art and #17 Mini cards using scraps! Love those ideas the most.. Now to go back and read the blogs associated with those posts!! Thanks for the giveaway!!
Jan Scholl says
I am going to visit my 2 1/2 year old grand daughter in a couple of weeks and have been putting together an art kit for her with stamps, inks, glitter etc. Her daddy is having his birthday the same week. So I am liking the garlands a lot. I think those are kid friendly. All I know is we will be glitter girls when we are done!
marie sierra says
I would love to try making the mini album! #15

Magazine page bowls look intriguing….. That’s where I’ll start!
Angela in Arkansas says
I love making mini journals, but those map coasters are calling my name.
17, 15, 16 and 6 maybe tomorrow. Our Dollar Store has craft paper on a roll and I can use my scraps as a collage. These are so cool!! Thank you. And thank you fir the giveaway.
Robyn Josephs says
I like the map coasters
sneaky of you to use of your stash by giving some away!
I would definitely make some cards, but I’d also like to try the mini album. Thanks for the giveaway!
Holly W says
The ‘scrap paper canvas art’ looks neat! This would look great as a background for a scrapbook page! Im definitely doing this one first!
Wendy Lynch says
Definitely projects 10 and 15. I already had them pinned! Thanks for the giveaway…my hoard needed a jolt. Ha!
Rodney Boney says
Of all I would start with numbers 6 and 9.
Carol Mc says
Such good ideas … hard to choose but I think I’d try Number 15-Mini Album from Recycled Materials, first. Have been wanting to do this for a while now!
Thanks for the opportunity.
Marilyn H says
I would try the Recyled Wrapping Paper Gift Tags and the Map Coasters first. However, all the projects are great!
Toni Leli says
I’ve been watching YouTube on how to make fabric bowls — and now this! Magazine paper bowls! Wow! I’ve gotta try it!
These are great ideas! I would like to make the chrysanthemum flowers first.
domestic diva says
The map coasters look like fun.
Barbara Leffeler says
I would make the magazine bows. I could probably use wrapping paper too.
Wow… What great projects to make. I think I would go for the Gift tags, mini cards and the paper flowers first. Then I would go for some of the others. Thanks for the chance.
I would definitely do the I heart you garland and make some mini cards and tags! Thanks for the ideas!
Rebecca Bodine says
Number 17, 2, and the beads you explained yesterday.
Ummm, it would have to be the memo boxes for me as well x
Patti T says
Mini cards and bookmarks! Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win! I can always use more paper for my Operation Write Home cards!
I love those cute map coasters and the bookmark corners leave lots of room for creativity. Thanks for all the great ideas! Kathy
I’ve never tried paper mache and those bowls are too tempting to not give it a whirl.
I think my children would love to make something like the turkey collages.
Erin Rutkowski says
This kind of craft is right up my alley. I have the best luck taking what others say is garbage and turning it into art or something useful.Everyone says I am a pack rat , an organized one, but I take a lot of slack! I may have some things stored away for years, but I know right where everything is and seem to always use everything up. So anyway I would pick the envelopes, because it is a way to share my art with everyone, even a stranger. It is nice to think of someone seeing it, sharing it with others,and smiling!
The magazine bowl looks interesting. I’ve made envelopes out of old calendars before.
Carla Hundley says
Great ideas. I’d like to try
numbers 7-9 and 17.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Alice C. says
The recycled heart garland would look fabulous in my granddaughter’s bedroom! Lots of other great ideas to try later. Thanks for the chance to win your scrap paper goodness bundles.
Nancy D says
Love the mini albums and the small cards out of scraps! So much fun creating with recycled items!
Cat Graves says
While they all look like great projects, I am partial to the map coasters and the magazine pop art. Thank you for all you share with us and thank you for this giveaway!!
My #1 favorite and first to try is the Map Coasters. Knowing that there is Outdoor ModPodge is a great help to protect the coasters. My father passed away last month and traveling around the world is one of the amazing gifts he influenced our family with and this project would give a great visual memory for many places we have been using the maps he saved. Thanks!!
I love so many of these ideas, but the coasters are what I will do first! They look so easy. Thanks for the chance. 🙂
