You could plan your next swap cards using some, plan som 10/10/20 using some, and you could package some up with card bases and give them as gifts at workshops. I hate dealing with scraps, I feel to guilty to throw them away, and they always get ahead of me. I have been trying to take left overs from stamp camp and pack them up right away into kits to give away as door prizes. I put them in a cello bag and stamp "card kit" on the topper. I throw in left over ribbon, buttons and such as well. Good luck.

ohhh cardstock swatch?? i think there's plenty in here to make at least 2 or 3 of them!!! Thanks for the ideas!! I've stocked them into quarter ziplock bag for now, until there's a better system hopefully!! I really wish SU would come something like that!! LOL! Thanks everyone for your suggestion! Appericate it!!
I keep mine with my full-sized paper so that when I pull the package, I can see if there are smaller pieces of paper for the size I can use without cutting the larger CS. I try to keep the paper in the original shrink wrap, but I so wish that SU would return to the cellophane packages that they used to use as that was better to keep the scraps organized.

I keep my 8.5 x 11 cardstock in hanging files (sorted by color family). Each hanging file also has a manilla folder that holds that color's scraps. So if I'm looking for some Brocade Blue for a project, I go to that folder but I always check the scraps first to see if I have something the right size.

I think planning your next card around them is a good idea but might a challenge. How about making a bundle and using it for a door prize? Kind of like those 1 lb. bags you find in scrapbook stores??? Good Luck!
