So, I made these in January out of wrapping paper, ribbon and other pieces of paper and cardstock that I received for Christmas presents (or in the mail around the holidays). I'm only now getting around to posting them... bad Craftster!

As always, I made all the postcards using no purchased materials (except gluesticks, of course!).

This one started off with many more stripes... but they didn't enjoy being stuck to such shiny paper... so they left.

This one is made from a matte silver gift bag and the stripes liked sticking to this one much better...

this is the back of the above card... it's only one with an interesting backside... I used a piece of cardboard that held a crafting implement...but I can't remember which one now.

snowflake pattern...

I think this one is a bit basic for my taste, but my aunt really liked it!

this one turned out well, I think...(it's the same silver gift bag and rebellious shiny paper)

I love this one so much! It was hard to send it...

and this one, I loved so much, I didn't send it Smiley it's made from a gold gift bag and a postcard reminder from the gas company...

a close up of the article that you can see through the eye...

I hope you like them! Comments and critiques always welcome! m(_ _)m


...puttin' things together...

I like the snowflake one and the gold gift bag/gas company reminder ones.
the one with the pink ribbon is pretty too.
