I'm stumped, can't think

Those of you who frequent my Etsy shop know that I really try to scrapbook and craft in a "green" way and use as many scraps as possible. I now have a whole pile of 1 inch strips of patterned paper that are left over from making my blank notecard sets. I've thought of somehow weaving them into something, but I have no idea what to make. I've thought of a paper strip collage background for a card, altered canvas, etc.

Anyone have any creative ideas for these cute strips of paper? I can always save them to use on the occasional card, but there has to be something really cute and clever out there for these little papers! Help! :)

If they are coordinatingn strips, you could use them for the coasters, and just butt them up to one another to make a stripe. :)

I LOVE Karin's idea about the coasters! Right now, I just recycle my scraps.

Thanks for the ideas, ladies! I knew I could count on my blog readers for help. :)

I'll try a coaster and possibly an altered frame when I get a chance.
