It's amazing how far two sheets of patterned paper can go. I originally bought the two sheets to make a birthday card for my friend. It turned into a birthday card and envelope, a mini notebook and several thank-you cards (The thank-you cards were not for my friend; those are not part of the birthday card pack.).

Birthday card pack:

I'm so excited about the vintage look I created by rubbing sandpaper on the sheets. It was SOOOO fun. Here's a few close-ups of the back of the tag and the card so you can see the distressed look:

That's space to write a message. But I don't want to mess them up!! I might just use them as thank-you tags instead and include a note on plain white paper in the envelope.

These two are not that cute:

All these I completed while I was supposed to be studying for finals!!!

*I am afraid all these pics may be too much and the post will show up too slow to view. Would you please let me know if there's a problem viewing it? Thanks!!

Ooh! I like 'em! 

* The pics are a bit big.  I like seeing them all, but maybe you could make them a bit smaller?

It looks great!  Cheesy The pictures all came up no problem. The sandpaper vintaging is something I will have to try.

Please pm me if you'd like to trade ATCs!

Oh my gosh! They're all soo cute! Really good job! I see that you've sewn some of the papers together, do you use one of those little paper sewing machines??


I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.

Those are so pretty! Using sandpaper to distress them was such a great idea, I may have to use that in the future. Cheesy I love the color combination too.

P.S. You're handwriting is superb. Smiley

Neat! I love the colors and the many uses of tags. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry for the late response....have been away from the computer for a while...thank you so much for the kind responses SmileySmileySmiley. RE the sewing machine, I have tested out the tiny battery-operated sewing machines and they do work for sewing a straight stitch on paper, but I just used my regular sewing machine.

P.S. A good mini one to get is the Sew D'Lite Supreme from Sears or Target. There's also a cute 3/4 size machine, the Mini Ultra, that you can get from Sears in a variety of beautiful colors, like pink pearl, mint green pearl, white pearl.
