Let’s Get Negative – H2H Challenge

Time travel to 02/15 when I discover this post
has received almost 1,800 repins!
This blows my mind!
Hey Cricut lovers – nod if you agree. 
You’ve cut a mess of shapes on your Cricut, now what to do with the cut up card stock?
Get Negative!
Here is a tip or two to help you use your Cricut leftovers.
Filling In:
When adding paper on the backside – use paper that is not quite as tall as the strip so you don’t have too many layers to cut through.
Try using Bonding Memories Glue instead of a double sided tape.
Try using different Close To My Heart paper pack scraps – you’ll be surprised how many kits look great together.
A New FUNN Place to Add a Little Something!
Add little elements like smaller sizes of the cut out *see the heart with “love”, for example*
Add a little knot bow of Waxy Flax or Baker’s Twine
Add a button.
Try using a piece of striped ribbon or burlap for one cut out.
Have FUNN!
If you have a sample, why not show it off on my facebook page?
Oh – and you can quit nodding now!
