Posted by Melodee Cloud

We all have them — scraps! I love learning of new ways to use them up. Elizabeth Martinez has a great tutorial today to show how to put some of those scraps to great use.

First off, I would like to say that becoming part of the ScrapbookSteal's family is one the best things that has happened to me. I'm very blessed to have made many new friendships because of ScrapbookSteals. The friendships I have made are very supportive, encouraging and kind and I love them all. I will treasure these friendships always.

Here is a fun project which I recently made during National Scrapbooking Weekend.

- with cardstock "spine" paper fold the 8" length in 1/2 and 1/2 and 1/2 making it into an accordion.
