Use your papercut "garbage". . .

I've been making an effort to use all my "artsy" scraps.  These white pieces are the computer paper patterns that were cut while making my recent papercuts.
In the past I would've probably tossed these "leftovers" in the trash but after all the back scrunching, eye squinting, cutting work it was time to figure out how I could recycle them. 
Ink spray gives these pieces an entirely different look than the original and can easily be featured in your art journal or as scraps in other mixed media pieces. 
How you do reuse "scraps" in your art?

These are beautiful and delicate "scraps". :) I have way too much scraps just being scraps.
