Using Peel Offs

I think, like most people, I have a box full of peel offs that never sees the light of day, unless I need a quick greeting.

They were bought when I first started card making but I struggle now to find uses for them, especially when it comes to scrapbooking.

For this layout of our holiday on Corfu last year I wanted some tropical looking flowers but had nothing in my flower stash. I then remembered these Dawn Bibby peel offs, which, being white, seem to be far more usable. I stuck them onto some basic grey papers and cut them out and I think they worked well.

The tails of the butterflies were also peel offs.

Maybe they are not something that should just wallow in a box forgotten, it's just a case of finding new uses for them.

A beautiful layout, and the peel offs don't look like peel-offs! I too have loads of peel offs I rarely use. Must remind myself what stash I've got!
