I am on the ball!!!!! Okay, this is a BIG brag because normally, I am not!!!! I made some cards the other day and ended up with scraps, we all do, right? I kept looking at those pieces of crumb cake cardstock. What could I use them for??? I really hate to throw away scraps especially of my favorite color of cardstock: Crumb Cake . They were an odd size so even for 3X3 cards, my scraps wouldn't work. Then a thought popped in my head..(it happens every now and again :) ) Valentine's cards!!! I love making homemade Valentine's for the boys to take to school. My oldest is beyond this now, but it is fun for the two youngest yet!
Here is what I came up with. Since I have boys, I always try to make them not so girly. Last year my homemade Valentines were:
This year I wanted to use another boy stamp set and the new You're My Hero Set . My scraps were perfect for this project since the Valentines don't have to be a certain size!
This is the inside of the card. I used the Tags for You set (#131823) available from the Holiday catalog on August 1st with the making Bracket punch on the inside of the card. I will add some slits in the fold of the card to add a sucker to each card. The back of the card will say From and my child's name. EASY!!! I only made 10 of these since that was all the scraps I had at this time. Maybe I will make a new design for the rest, maybe keep this same design. Who knows!!! But I am making this year's Valentine's out of SCRAPS ONLY!!!!! Stay tuned!!!
Thanks for stopping by- I appreciate all those that visit!!!
