Embellished doggy notecards
Any time I see packages of stationary or notecards on sale, I pick them up. I probably shouldn't, since I have so many lying around, but it's quite useful to have them when you find you've forgotten to get someone a birthday card. I rarely give them out as-is, though. I have to make them my own, first!

    Step 1

    Here are three designs I made using a little package of blank notecards:

    I love having multiples of the same card! For this one, I cut the dog shape out of one card and tied a green ribbon around its neck.

    Next, I punched tiny circles out of the back of the card, which was pink.
    I glued these circles to the front of the second card, around the dog

    Once those were glued on, I used foam tape to stick the dog cut out directly on top of the dog on the second card.

    For the second card, I painted glue on a few of the white flowers on the front of the card. I had colored sand leftover from another project, so I poured pink sand on the petals, then added a dot of glue and some yellow sand for the centers.

    I really liked the green bow on the first card, so I added a collar of green sand on the dog.

    Lastly, I made a strip of green sand at the top of the inside of the card.

    For the last one, I cut the dog out of the front with my craft knife. I put double stick tape around the edges of the inside cover, then cut it away where it overlapped the dog cutout.

    I had a plastic bag from some tissue paper I bought before my buy-nothing month started,
    so I layed it on the tape, with one seam along the top, smoothing the plastic as I went. Next, I trimmed the plastic to about an inch around the card, leaving me with a plastic flap.

    I used more double stick tape on the vertical edges of the card, inside the plastic. I smoothed the second layer of the plastic bag down on the tape, creating a little pouch with the bottom open. I trimmed the plastic from the sides of the card, but left the excess plastic on the bottom edge. I poured about a teaspoon of my new favorite crystal glitter into the pouch, then folded up the excess plastic and taped it with one-sided tape.

    I adhered the dog shape to the inside of the card with my trusty double stick tape, directly under the dog-shaped window in the front, and the card was finished. So cute! I think this one is my favorite!
