A girlfriend found herself in Paper Source and couldn't pass up the scrap bag, so she bought it for me. I thought it would be nice to regift her the paper in another form, so I made a set of cards. Obviously I've got mini cards on the brain, as these ones are 3 1/2 by 3 1/2. I used the Unity sentiments so I could play along with the Friends With Flair crew. Then I decided to try my luck in the Lessology challenge to alter a trinket box, so I upcycled a cardboard jewelry box and covered it with some of the Paper Source scraps. I had this fabulous Paper Phine necklace hiding in my ribbon stash, so I wrapped it up and and included it in the gift.
And since said girlfriend is a writer I thought it would be fun to make some additional mini cards to go in the little box, so I found inspiration from today's Moxie Fab World post with Kim Kesti's fun texty/thought bubble set. I'm going to enter these cards in the Lawnscaping "Get Texty" challenge. And since the new Young Crafters Unite challenge is to make a matching envelope, I found one lone mini envelope and stamped a larger thought bubble on the outside of it. And then I hand delivered the goodies to the girlfriend and she loved it! Success.
