I wanted to share a project with you that I worked on all day yesterday. I was inspired to make a lot of mini Christmas cards (measuring three inches square) to have on hand for next Christmas season. I had a few in my stash that I had purchased a few years ago, and we used them all this year. They are a great size for teacher gift bags, pollyanna gifts, etc., especially when you don't need a full sized card.
I decided to look online to see if I could find envelopes this size, and sure enough I did! (Thank you, Amazon!)
The best part about this whole project is that I didn't buy any new supplies! Everything I used -- from papers to stamps to stickers to due cuts -- I already had in my stash of supplies. Boy, it sure feels good to use your stuff!
Here is the total mini card haul...thirty-one cards!
Most of the cards have a holiday messade inside, although I left some blank. This was a great way to use up some busy patterned papers! Here are some closer shots:
(These are awaiting some embellishment, I didn't decide what I want on them yet!)
I am so happy to have accomplished this before next Christmas arrives...I tend to feel my most creative after Christmas is over and I can finally find some time to relax and play! Just when everyone is starting their Valentine's Day cards, I'm finally in the mood to make some Christmas cards! :)
Thanks for sticking with me though a long post. Best wishes for a very happy, healthy new year! I can't believe that I started this blog on New year's Day in 2011... that means I am starting my seventh year of blogging! Thank you for coming along for the ride with me!
Take good care,
