When I make something with paper there are always leftover scraps that I just can't seem to throw away. Aside from letting them pile up, what are you supposed to do with them? I found the answer to that while browsing Pinterest.
You start with a piece of paper a bit smaller than your finished card. Gather your scrap papers and start cutting wedges. You'll be creating a sunburst pattern. Decide where you want the center of your sunburst to be. That center point is where all your wedges will start. Then just randomly start laying the wedges around your paper with edges meeting. Trim it up and add it to your card.
You can see the card that inspired me and the tutorial for how to create this on Four Wise Guys
Just for a little something extra, I thought I would show you how I've been taking the pictures for my cards. Lets back out from the above shot a little bit and see what's really going on there.
I use a white tablecloth draped over my dining room chair. Sometimes I just open the whole thing up and drape it over the back of the chair. This time I clipped it to the top. I move the chair so it's facing the sliding glass door. I still do some touching up in Photoshop elements but this is a nice uncluttered background.
