Using DSP & Ribbon Scraps

Using DSP & Ribbon Scraps

I have a feeling we are all always on the lookout for ways to use our scraps of DSP and ribbon.  It’s all so pretty and as much as we might like to hoard it a little, it’s even more fun to use it!

Today I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing with some of the pieces around my studio lately.Using up Scraps of DSP

Early in the spring I purchased a lot of small notebooks for the Stationary Boxes we were making.  Apparently I was afraid I would never be able to find them again if I needed more, so I stocked up well.  (Anyone else ever do that?  Please tell me I’m not the only one!!)

Anyway, I’ve pulled out some of the notebooks (yes, I still have more) and some scraps of DSP, both current and retired and went to work.  I also pulled out some ribbon, current and retired, for a little touch and in some cases, depending how much ribbon was available, a bookmark.

These are cute little gifts for a new coworker or stocking stuffers or for those who love to keep a notebook handy to record temperatures or birds sighted throughout the day or . . . . I could keep going for some time to come!

So, stock up on some little notebooks when you’re out (if you don’t already have a stash hidden away that is) and put some of those scraps to good (cute!) use!

Thanks for coming by to visit today!


  1. Oh Becky, what a great creation you have come up with to share with us today. The “Using DSP & Ribbon Scraps” is a great idea, I wish I had thought of it. I do buy extras of certain things too, as you never know how long you will get them at a bargain price. Thanks for the reminder, I am out of the small notebooks like you have shown here. You did a wonderful job on making these into beautiful gifts. Have a great day. 🙂

  2. I am bad to stock up. I do it with groceries too. Love the little books.
