Two from one

Earlier today I decided I needed to tidy my craft stuff and on the work surface I had some Christmas cards that we'd received and quite a few offcuts and bits and pieces - it seemed silly to put them away, so I've had a session making a few cards - you can't really call it crafting, it's more like 'stick the bits together', but it's a few more cards done. Mind you, my craft space is just as cluttered as when I started because I've added to the mess!

These two cards were made from one recycled one cut in two pieces and mounted on to blue card blanks, adding some silver glittered strips and peel off sentiments:

These are for:

  1. These are so simple yet so effective, Hazel! I almost regret giving my old Christmas cards to the Toddler Group - but the children will have such fun cutting and sticking, it's very worthwhile! Who knows, they may even end up as cardmakers too?!
