Using up your stash leftovers

This is a picture of a little tag book I made - very quickly.

The tags are actually die cut tags from K&Co "Scrap Pad to Go".

Often, when you buy a kit or pack like this you end up with items that you just wouldn't use, mainly because they are not your style.

That was so with all the die cut items that came in the scrap pad.
On each tag there is an affirmation... personal to me, of course (and to do with "The Secret" about which I have mentioned in previous posts).
So to quickly make a little booklet of my affirmations, (rather than just wrtite them on a piece of paper) I decided to "use up" some of the tags in the pack, along with some of the bits and pieces, such as the tabs that say things like happiness and joy (but were in the sorts of colour combinations I wouldn't think to use on a layout.
Anyway, of course you could just add a photo to these tags, or just inspirational quotes... put a book ring through their holes and add a couple of bits of ribbon and hey presto you're done! Use for your self or give it as a gift.
If you make a couple up with quotes (ie nothing specific to one particular person) you could have some of these little tag books "on standby" ready for use as emergency pressies!!
