I pulled out my scrap paper the other night to write a couple notes to some of my favorite people. I cut one cute paper in half and turned it over to write my message on the back of it. Just as my pen was about to touch the paper I thought, "What am I doing? That would be super lame to just have a note scrawled across the back of a plain piece of scrap paper!" I pulled out more paper, and my needle and thread, and made some really great cards in no time.
Here is what I came up with:
Cut out the paper, fold the big one in half for the card base
Stitch from front to back,
leaving the tail long enough to use for a knot
Stitch from back to front,
leaving a little space between the two stitches
so the paper won't rip
Tie a knot, trim off the excess thread.
And done- Cute cards instead of lame notes!
I love it when that happens.
