  1. I use a boutique tissue box on my sewing table for my scraps – when it is full I just toss it out (especially if it has needles or rotary blades in it) – as a gift for a friend I made a personalized tissue box cover and then gave her some empty tissue boxes for scrap catching.

    Also – buy a regular or small size composition notebook and make a quilty fabric cover to go on it – great for shopping lists and shop hops.
