I literally had nothing to contribute this month to this blog post, until I was going through the mail at work and came across a piece of junk mail that sparked my interest.
The colors were so beautiful and it felt like a very smooth, heavy cardstock. I decided to keep it and see what I could come up with.
Here it is:
Here's the back, isn't it pretty?
The Inside. I didn't use this for this project but I wanted to show it to you
So here's what I did. I cut out two squares, 1 @ 5" and 1 @ 5.25". I used a corner punch on the 5" one and glued it to the second one.
I cut the straws at 2.5" to make the candles and then I cut the "wicks' out of yellow cardstock and added red stickles for the flames. Really simple.
I added some bling and adhered everything to a 5.25" white card base to finish.
I will forever be paying extra attention to the mail now!!☺
Thanks for looking!!!
