A Cut at Home Design Team Project
The other day I was sitting here at my desk thinking I really should clean up all these bits and pieces from my last mini, it was made using Graphic 45's Botanical Tea Collection. I didn't have much left, a few scraps of paper and then the odds and ends from the packages of flowers, pendants, banners, chipboard, pockets etc. A little of this and a little of that, but more than I could just chuck and say DONE. Previously I'd made a larger mini and a gift box to house it in, so it's not like I hadn't already gotten a lot from my one 12x12 paper pad, but still there were pieces left!
I took out a stack of white cardstock, I believe it's 110# 8 1/2" x 11" and cut them in half giving me a standard A2 size card base, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" when scored in the middle. I picked up the first card base and figured I just make a card or two! Thirteen cards later I had depleted all but the smallest smidgens of paper and the majority of the add-on flowers, pendants, pockets etc. I couldn't believe how far those scraps had gotten me.
Now mind you, I left the insides blank and didn't add multiple layers of the decorative paper but I was pretty happen with my baker's dozen of cards. Check out the video below for close ups of each card. I hope this will inspire you make yourself a collection of cards too!
Supplies: In addition to the supplies linked below I also used laces and trims from The Piece by Piece, white cardstock, assorted ribbon, twine, button and flowers from my stash
