craft: quilt cards II

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Time to show off one of my favorite projects -- quilt cards! Two reasons why I love doing these: I'm able to clean out some of my favorite scraps and put them to good use, and my unique personality enjoys placing little squares into one large square.

For those friends who claim to be helpless when it comes to crafting, sewing, decorating or walking in straight lines, this is the one project that anyone can do with minimal effort and creativity. All it takes is paper and, if you really want to get wild, a stamp. But you can also take cards that you've received from others, cut them into squares, and create another card. How cute would that be with an entire holiday card collection from one year and using it the next year?

Happy birthday to a dear friend and colleague this coming week ... these will make a special gift.
