Greeting Cards from Scrap........

Cards from Scraps ..........

You can make up these cards in a flash. Card stock in various size and colors can come from a craft store for under $2.00 a pkg. OR you can pick up a few paint sample cards in different shapes and sizes from your local home supply and paint stores. Using a bit of paper doily lace, buttons and ribbon, I used only stick glue to apply to my card stock. Then wrote my message with colored pencil. For the little pocket phone directory, I folded the long paint sample card where it was already marked, put 2 holes with the punch for ribbon, cut some white scrap paper for the inside to write #'s on and secured the pages and cover with the ribbon. It took me about 15 minutes to gather materials I had at home to make these two fun items! See how creative you can be! Other suggestions: Mini Photo Album and fancy frame for school wallet pictures.
