I’ve been into scrapbooking since I was in High School. As most of you know in the past few years I’ve converted completely to digital scrapping–but I still have a ton of papers, embellishments, stickers, and more from my paper scrapping days. Because of this I like to come up with fun and creative things to do with all my “left overs”. I was really excited when I got the chance to review a couple of Glue Dots great products! You can visit the Glue Dot Fan Page Here to find out more about them.
My sister is spending the summer on staff at a Bible Camp in Wyoming and her 17th b*day is this coming week (mine is July 12th, hers is the 13th–I always say she was my late b*day present 🙂 ) Anyways I haven’t gotten to talk to her much this summer and wanted to do something fun and special for her birthday. Greeting cards these days are just so “blah”. It seems like I spend an hour to find one that doesn’t even seem that funny or say what I want it to. I decided to create a very special birthday card just for my sister instead of buying one!
Here is how you can make your very own card too!
Materials: Scrapbooking Paper, paper scraps, Glue Dots, Marker, Envelope, and something to cut with
Step #1 Fold and cut the Scrapbook Paper so that it fits into your envelope
Step #2 Trim the picture to the size & shape you want and use glue dots to attach it to a piece of paper to create a frame around it
Sept #3 Cut Scrap Paper into strips of random sizes and use glue dots to attach them to front of the card
Step #4 Use glue dots to attach matted picture on top of paper strips
Step #5 Use your marker to decorate and write an insanely witty comment
Step #6 Mail the card and think about the giggles it will cause when read, throw in some cash too–since everyone deserves to get b*day presents!
