Totally not my original idea but I use this method and have found that I love it!--I sorted my scraps into color groups and stored them in an accordian file. I used a lable maker to mark my tags. I even had room for vellum and acetate as well as for metalic (which i have so few of i keep all together). You could keep DP scraps with the solids or if you use a lot, do a separate file. I keep my accordian file next to my table and have found that I have a lot less waste since I can quickly look for the right size to punch, fold, stamp and glue. My file is just a brown one from Wal-mart with months on the tabs. I tried an opaque one with blue trim but that seemed to cause a blue tint to everything. BTW - if KV reads this -- it is her idea and ne of the best!
