A Little Note

I would like to share a fun way to use up some of your stash. You can customize these little note cards for many occasions, including a simple thank you for a holiday gift.



I made the card base out of 2 hand cut tags. They are bound together using a strip of patterned paper. (Instead of cutting your own tags, use up that stash of shipping tags you may have on hand.) This card base measures about 3" x 1.5".

To make the multi-colored snowflake, apply red and blue ink onto the stamp. The two colors will blend to create this variation in color.

Use various baubles and crystals to further embellish the snowflake. Adhere it to the card with a foam adhesive square for some depth. Additional details like the twine, rub-on sentiment, and metal letter complete the look.

I hope you enjoyed this little project. Make up a bunch and use up all those items you have on hand.
Thank you, everyone, for stopping by today.
