Mini me

After nearly every run we have small piles of overprints and off-prints. What to do with these beautiful scraps?

Linda & Harriett in Brooklyn cuts theirs to create "Redesigned" flower pins and dress cards:

Night Owl Paper Goods makes their own flower cards out of misprints:

While many of ours become test sheets for future print runs, anything with images worth sharing we save in to cut into "minis".

Though one of our most popular products, we only sell "grab bag minis" at craft fairs. After cutting down all those glorious scraps into flat gift enclosure cards, we sort them into color piles and then make up little assortments of five different cards and envelopes, perfect for any gifting need.

What other re-purposing ideas are out there?
