Kelli at There Is No Place Like Home hosts a Paper Crafting Thursday each week, and since paper crafting is the name of my game at the moment, I wanted to share with you what I've done this week.
I've been making Christmas cards from parts of old Christmas cards, usually part of the front panel. I've had a lot of fun doing this, and it uses up all those old cards I've refused to throw away for years! :) Here are a few of the latest ones:
I also tried my hand at making tags this week. I don't know why, but tags intimidate me, but Tuesday night I just decided to sit down and try it. I like how these came out, and I have a few ideas for more. For these, I just cut a 2-1/2 x 5-inch piece of cardstock and rounded the top corners. Then I cut a piece of patterned paper just a little smaller, rounded two corners, and glued it to the cardstock. Next, I cut a mat from olive green cardstock, stamped Merry Christmas on a piece of white cardstock, and attached them to my tag. I punched 3 holes for brads at one end and tied a ribbon on the other. I inked the tag edge and the stamped edge, but you don't have to do that. Very easy!
I commented on Kelli's Paper Crafting Thursday several weeks ago and won the supplies to make a card from Kelli! If you do any kind of paper craft, be sure to blog about it, then go over to Kelli's and put your entry on her Mr. Linky, and you'll be entered in her drawing too. Two people win each week!
All of these cards and tags are available on my Etsy shop.
