Remnants of 3 A.M.

I rarely have what you might call an epiphany - that ding-ding-ding I have a great idea moment! For some unknown reason, in the middle of the night, I was thinking about all the 3.25" x 11" card stock strips I end up with when making square cards. Then I remembered the nearly 500 "coin envelopes" I have sitting around (a transfer of crap item from a friend).

So with a wee bit of additional trimming I now have a source for cards that will facilitate the whittling down of my monumental stack of small envelopes! Sweet! I love it when an insomniac plan comes together! So watch for a series of  'remnant' cards!
