Roundup: 10 Ways To Use Fabric Scraps In Your Home

10 DIY Home Decor Projects Using Fabric Scraps

I have a huge bag of fabric scraps that has accumulated over the years. And I never know what to do with all of those beautiful (albeit tiny) pieces of fabric. But it seems like such a waste to let them just sit there, taking up valuable closet space. So I did a little research and found ten awesome ideas from around the web.

Thanks so much, Faith, but I need one for the other type of tissues, not the 'tall' ones, but think I've seen others.  Just liked the one you'd posted, as I'd hoped by using the circular opening, it may help Kleenex not lose it's feed so often!  ;)

LOVE the tissue box cover, but can no longer find the directions that I thought I saved -- can you point me in the right direction, please?
