One “problem” that I am always trying to solve is: what to do with all those little paper cuts that are the “garbage” from projects I make on the ScanNCut.  I hate to throw them away, but what to do with them?

Well, I’ve figured it out and I am obsessed with this idea: hot glue envelope seals with paper bits embedded in the glue.  What am I talking about?  Check it out:

If you look through your stash of scraps and bits, I’ll bet that you can find dozens exciting little paper bits to embed in a hot glue envelope seal!

Also: You can do this on a glass mat or silicone mat so that the “seals” are free standing bits. This would allow you to use them as embellishments, anywhere you’d like!

I hope you think this idea is as cool as I do.
