Since it’s almost Halloween, I thought I’d make a Use Your Stash Challenge with Halloween paper! This project accomplishes two things 1) You use up your seasonal paper in a non-seasonal way (think outside the box with some of the patterns in your paper pads that can be generic!) and 2) You can add to your stash for the always needed birthday card!
Step 1) punch a large hole in the front of a card. Take 2 pieces of baker’s twine and tape them across the front of the hole. Take your seasonal paper (in this case, mine is a Tim Coffey Halloween paper pad) and make little pennants and glue them onto the twine. (mine fold over like on this garland card so they stay secure)
Step 2) Punch the same hole in a piece of patterned paper that is cut to size for the front of the card and adhere it down! this paper hides your mechanics of the pennant garland.
Step 3) Finish with a stamped phrase and BAM! another birthday card to send a friend!
