Mulberry Paper Christmas Cards... use it up!

I've been slowly going through my boxes of scrapbooking supplies since we moved and more so since I've gotten shelving from Ikea, and I am getting closer to the end of my boxes. 
Will it ever end?  I'm such a hoarder... hehe 

It just makes me wonder, how on earth did I ever fit all of that into a 9' x 11' room???

Anyways, I've been purging stuff into a "stuff to sell" corner of my room, and yes even some into a garbage box (yes, I said box... because it won't all fit into my little trash cans...), and I came across an unused pad of Mulberry paper I bought a long time ago.

The papers are only about 5 3/8" x maybe 6 5/8".

So of course I had to stop everything I was doing/sorting/cleaning/putting away and play...

I decided it was time to use some of it up... and this is what I made...







Each of the papers are embossed, glittered, or painted in some manner.

Beautiful.

Which is why I opted for a simple design.



Use up some of your stash... it feels good!

Now I just need to focus on getting these puppies out in the mail!!!!  ;)



Happy creating!  :)

Vicki - great idea about using up your stash. I pulled out some of my non-ctmh papers and CASED your french fry box/hot chocolate idea for some gifts. I was glad to finally use up some of my stash.

It is like you are reading my mind. I have been focusing on using my stash lately. I think that my local scrapbook store is going to file a missing persons report on me :)
I love the embossed mulberry. Thanks for the idea!
