That's what they used to say anyway, but I think that was before the Hoarders show became so popular.
The flower and the crimped part of this card are made with the packaging material that comes in my Stampin' Up boxes. I punched out three different sizes from my scalloped edges punches then distressed the edges. I'm trying out my new camera and I think I need to do some adjusting on the settings as it looks much better in person.
It's because they have candy inside. They are so simple to make and you can make them any size. I cut my paper 4 x 4, mainly so I wouldn't waste any of my precious paper since I used a 12 x 12 sheet. You could fill them with money or little Easter trinkets if you are trying to stay away from the sugar scene. I think what makes them so cute is the little crimping on the ends.
I made a few of these cards as a thank you for my customers that ordered from the last Stampin Up event that I had.
I just love these polka dot brads and have been hoarding them 'cause I like them so much. I decided I really don't know what I'm saving them for, if I like them so much I should be using them since I can always buy more.
There have been something else I've been hoarding as well.
My friend Evy gave me a sheet of the First Edition Specialty paper so I thought I would bite the bullet and make a card with that as well. I really didn't want to cover much of the paper so decided just to add a small punch and button.
For this card I used some old playing cards and now I just need to find someone that's turning 21 and I have the perfect card.
Last time my friend Jenny had her Stampin' Up event, I went to join the fun. This wasn't going to be part of the fun, but when she showed it to us, we got so excited she did a little demo and let us try it.
The one on the right is the one we made at her house. When I got home I wanted to make another one so I would remember how, but I don't have round punches but I do have the Spellbinder circles so my body is a little rounder (which turns out to be more realistic to my real dog).
I ran with it and made a bunch.
After all those very time intensive dogs I need to make something quick and easy and this one fit the bill.
