Mini-me cards


A big and helpful craft tip is to not waste, the trouble is you often get stuck with little bits and pieces that dont get used. Don't save them up for a rainy day, try and use them straight away. Today I made what I am nick naming 'Mini-Me' I made 2 cards and had a little bit of scrap left over so made a miniature version of the bigger cards.
Part of my inspiration was from making some ATC's for a group swap, the theme was 'Flowers' so I tore up floral papers and decorated them with a Prima flower and some doodling, then stamped each corner to spell ou the word 'flower'. I also made a patchwork card; where you piece together similar papers and add a stitching design along the edges.

These are so cute! Clever you to make use of all those little bits and pieces - you should also check out Lythan's card on the DCM today for another way to use little pieces of paper.....
