paper scrapping

I have a ton of paper scraps all over the place in my workspace. Leftovers from other projects that  are still perfectly usable, just not big enough for journal pages, etc. I've been working on a few Everyday journals. And the covers. Oh, the covers (which I've said before), are the hardest part ;) Well. I had been thinking about how I could use up all of these scraps in my scrapbox(es)..... How could I incorporate them into the cover? How about a collage?! Yes! :) So I started with a 4"x6" base piece of paper and started stacking scraps (and some doilies and tags ;)) on top. Sewed them on there and voila! Some fun new journals covers. Now to punch holes and add them to the journals. Yay for using up scraps :)
