Happy National Random Acts of Kindness Day to my Craftster peeps! Cheesy

To celebrate, I made a bunch of mini cards (each measuring ~ 1.25" by 1.75") with positive messages on them. 
The background for each card is pieced with tiny strips of scrapbook paper that I have accumulated from various projects. 
While I can't say it has made much of a dent in my scrap paper bin, it is such a fun way to use some of the choice bits and bobs Grin 
After I was done with adding other decorative bits and text, I sealed each card with paper glaze (it's what I had on hand...) to make sure everything stayed put.
For this round, I opted to use the following messages for the cards:
- be the change
- dwell in gratitude
- be strong and take heart
- you are beautiful
- be amazing
- you are special



Because these mini cards are super colorful, I decided to go with a simple black/white scheme for the packaging.
There wasn't room to include a note about the cards on the front, so I wrote messages on the back.



And here they are, all ready to be dropped off.   



Actually, some of these have already been dropped off in various areas in my neighborhood today Smiley
I really hope someone finds a smidge of joy and encouragement when they need it!
Thanks for checking out my project.

I always enjoy projects that uses up the leftover pieces.  Those pretty little cards are sure to brighten up the receiver day for sure and nice card holders too.
