Needle & Thread Cards

These beautiful cards were made with leftover pieces of Gingham Gala paper from a previous project.  If you missed that cute project which recycled an empty toilet paper roll into a cute hanging gift basket, you can find it here.

I just love the large die that pierces the background of these cards.  And, as you can see, it looks lovely in any color!  The Needle & Thread bundle and the Gingham Gala paper is on the retiring list, so if you like it, be sure to order before it’s gone!

I have one more project to show you with this paper, so be sure to stop back by!


Butterfly Gala Gift Basket

I love it when I can recycle or up-cycle everyday items that are normally thrown in the trash!

At Stamp Club this month, I asked everyone to bring an empty toilet paper roll.  We used them to make these little hanging gift baskets.  Aren’t they just the cutest?

We used the Gingham Gala paper from the Occasions Catalog.  This paper is on the retiring list, so if you don’t have it, get it quick!  I love this paper.  It comes in five colors, including Lemon Lime Twist, which we didn’t use for this project.  It has larger checks on one side and smaller checks on the other side.  I used the side with larger squares for this project.

After covering the tube with paper, we squeezed the bottom flat and stapled it, then covered the staples with “ribbon” made from matching cardstock and the ribbon border punch.

Stay tuned for cards made with the leftover paper!
