What do you do with scraps??

I started very recently my paper-piecing passion but very very quickly I accumulated a big mass of scraps which have the most weird shape or they are so tiny that they cannot be used in classic paper-piecing patterns. Like the one in this picture...

So I looked around on the web for projects that use scraps, but what they usually call "scraps" are pretty large pieces of fabric (with slightly irregular shape) that can be easily put together into "scrappy squares"... but unfortunately my pieces are much smaller and much crazier than the ones needed for those projects! :(

The only project that I found to make a real use of the scraps (and also all left-over threads) is the following (but didn't try it yet, so I don't know if it is as "simple" as it looks :) )

So here I am, looking for your advice! 
Do you have a special project that is suitable for the kind of scraps that I usually have?
If yes, can you share your ideas in the comments below?

P.S. I finally figured it out a way of using them and go from

to the following 10.5'' squares

but I would like to hear if there are other interesting way of using the scraps! :)

  1. i tend to make chinese coin quilts with my scraps. I'll do them in blocks and then rotate them on the quilt into a basket weave layout. So with my tiny scraps i make small chinese coin basket weave quilts :D


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
