    If you get yourself some Modge Podge (I hope you are getting 40% coupons at Michaels) you can make fabulous crafts from even the smallest scraps. We have turned plastic bottles into vases. done flower pots, pillar candles. cigar boxes, etc. You could crazy "quilt" an old chest, dresser, etc. Kids love it because it's easy and satisfying. I think this is "upcycling"!

    What a great idea. If my kids where little(1 still is but too little) I would do this with them to keep them busy. Thanks for the idea. I will have to rememeber this for Gk's years down the road. I hope.

    Think about making crafts to go with your quilts. I cut out little animals from a baby quilt project and put them on a lamp for baby's room. Charming! Decoupage a piece of wood & glue on a mirror. So many ideas.Lamp shades, coasters.
    And kids do love them.

    At one of the lqs in my area, they have a 'rug' made from Kaffe scraps and Mod Podge. It's really pretty!

    great idea
    I'm new to quilting but I think I might get a canvas & add scraps from all my projects as a record of each effort.

    Another idea for scraps, crochet strips, braid them, weave them.
    Or put them in a baggie & give them to someone who will. Senior centers love getting art supplies.
