Clearing out my cupboards, I found loads of greeting cards.  As my sentimentality makes it hard to throw such things away, Cameron and I turned Sophie's welcome and birthday cards into bunting for her room.



Next, we are going to tackle five years worth of Christmas cards for bunting to hang about the house next December (it may take me that long to make!)

Wow! Great idea. I've been collecting cards for awhile just to make things with the kinds and fold boxes. I'm going to try this next.

Hi, if I may make a suggestion...A bow and a wreath would go well with the old Xmas cards idea. I got that from a video I shared on my site a while back because I thought it was a cool idea...
