mini cardzzz


Hi all, it's "T". I'm a carder- love making them, love recieving them. I think it's a great way to say hello and remember those you love. Here is a tutorial on how to make "mini cards"; perfect for a b-day gift or wedding, or perfect for a hello or note on a pillow.

ALL YOU NEED:
::blank 3x5 index cards
::blank 4x6 index cards
::paper/glue roller and embellishments


TuRoRiAl:







fun, easy, and those index cards are so FRUGAL and PRE-CUT!!

Here's a few larger cards I've designed lately:

{{HI: quarter fold card, circle HI from my CRICUT}}

{{SUNSHINE: I took this sunflower pic and designed the saying on photo shop, a little ribbon, there ya go (original photos make great personal cards)}}

{{GRATEFUL: this is an 8x8 card folded in half. The 'grateful' is a printed address label}}

{{FLOWER: this is two sided paper, (corner flipped up) and some fuzzy yard I got at the dollar store}}

{{16th NOTE: I found this die-cut at my library, it's the die-cuts the teachers use in the classroom, most schools have this set I'm thinking??}}

{{TURQUOISE FLOWER: Another die from the library/teachers set, folded 8x8 paper}}

{{HAPPY BIRTHDAY: 8x8 folded in half again, and YES another address label!}}

Send a card today. xxoo T

I often have a hard time finding enough words to put in a big card for a simple thing, so I like the mini idea! How easy and super cute!

I LOVE EM! I'll have to admit that I'm a huge card scrapbooker myself, but I only get inspired to make them around Christmas time. By the time I'm done making my Christmas cards {about 40 to 50 of them}, I'm so worn out that the thought of making other cards {birthdays, get well} I just wanna die! But......If I can make mini one's in a jiffy, that's a bonus in my book! Thanks for the idea!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the mini cards! I love that they are little! Its great for those moments where you just want to write a little note instead of buying a card from the store and trying to write a novel to fill the card...

great job!
