I recently wanted to send a story my daughter had written about an uncle of mine to him and I can’t stand to just stick something in an envelope without a card (it’s an illness), so I whipped this up super quick. The leaf is from a package of 36 for a buck at the Dollar Tree! They’re paper doilies and when I saw them I immediately knew I could make cards with them. Or a fall garland to put on my fireplace screen. Or both! Here’s what I did:
I just very simply tied some twine/jute string around it and tied on a button from Little Red Cottage (love that shop). After I had done that, I realized that it was actually TWO doilies and by then there was no way I was pulling one of them off and then having to untie and re-tie. Too much work. So I just separated them and decided I kind of liked the look and left them that way! It’s sort of a 3-D card. See?
