Whenever we cook, we like to make extras so we can have leftovers. Many times those leftovers are used in a different way than the original meal. The same thing can be done with crafting. When I have a project, many times I will make extra pieces. Then, at some later date, I can use those pieces in a different way.
These pandas were left over from Meg's school Valentine's from last year. They were already cut and colored so I decided to make some Valentine cards out of them.
These pandas are digis from Pink Cat Studio and are colored with copic and prismacolor markers.
So next time you have a project, make some extra components. Put them in the extras drawer and from time to time, go through there and see what goodies you can find.
