As I was cleaning my desk I came upon a pile of scraps. Hmmm, I said to myself. There’s gotta be a card here!
So, I challenged myself to make a card using only the scraps and whatever else was on my desk.
Turns out there were three cards! There could have been more, but I really had to get to cleaning.
And then I challenged myself to photo the cards on my desk too — no easy task since there’s lotsa light coming in — which is great for being crafty, but not so great for photos since it makes super strong shadows. Anyhow, here goes!
First up, this one. Those little pieces of felt are from when I made J’s birthday surprise banner during the Hero Arts/Lawn Fawn blog swap week. Hee hee. I really like how this card came out! Check out the inside, I used a little scrap for it too!
Next I made this card with bits of lace, more felt, and washi tape — gotta love washi tape. When I use it I like to tear it and then stick the leftovers to my desk — which is where all these came from.
Then I just had to make one more:
Here’s a closeup so that you can see the felt and stitching better — although I do like how the light shines through the stitched holes!
I saved the rest of the scraps for later — I just couldn’t bear to throw them away! How about you, do you save your little scraps of paper, fabric, felt, this-n-that and make cards with them?
Can’t wait to mail these cards,
