Not a Christmassy post at all. I figure if they aren't done by now, they aren't getting done, LOL... at least for me.
A while ago I sent a card to Angie and she wanted to know how I did it. It dawned on me that I never told her.
I started with a circle, mine is about 3 1/2 inches. I cut it in half off-center (mine I cut at about 2 inches) . I then pleated each half as tiny as I could, fold in half, and put them together, back to back. I sewed through the middle of them with buttonhole thread starting from the top, came back the other way, tied it and then left the threads long for antennae. then I spread them out, and there you are. Fasten down-- I used glue if I remember right!
I like to use what I have-- and someone gave me a bunch of wallpaper samples. I figure cards are not kept forever, so "archival" is not really important. It has been fun to use. Some have larger pictures on them that i have cut out and used for focal images. The tiny prints worked best for me.
Anybody have any favorite recycling or unusual things they use in card making?
Angie, hope you are feeling well enough to do this!!
