What to do with all of those scraps of paper?

They call it scrapbooking, but that mean tons of SCRAPS of things.  What to do with all of it?  I organize all of my paper (be it scrap or full page) by color in a cabinet in hanging file folders.  Obviously not every scrap of paper is worth saving.  Those that I feel are big enough to save I do.  These scraps have come in handy tons of times.  They may work well on cards, scrapbook page decorations, or in kids projects.

I also store stickers in this same file folder system.  I only separate them by alphabet and other, and that has worked well for me so far.  It also works well when my youngest wants to make a card for her Daddy's up coming birthday.  She was thrilled to sort through all of my scraps and stickers to make her own masterpiece.
