We received two phone books in the last few days. I guess some people still use these, but I usually just toss them into our recycling bin. I decided to keep these, thinking I could use them in some way. Perhaps I could create a card! 🙂
Since I didn’t want the complete names and numbers of people to be shown, I decided to use a flower die that was thin enough to only reveal parts of the information. The flowers on these cards were created using a die from Elizbeth Craft Designs. I stamped the leaves and stem and cut them to finish the flower. I even used the ‘yellow pages’ to design my flower!
My family loves attending live theater, especially musicals. We received a flyer in the mail announcing that “Hamilton, the Musical” was going to be in San Francisco! I immediately knew what I would do with it!
Since the flyer was printed on sturdy card stock (and clean!), it was perfect to use to create a card.
Since my husband is such a big fan of the broadway musical, “Hamilton”, I knew I had to create this card for his special day! When I gave it to him, he reminded me that Alexander Hamilton was one of our founding fathers. That made it appropriate for a Father’s Day card!
I still have several traditional papers in my craft room to design many more cards, but I like the idea of repurposing some items that add different elements.
Catalogs, magazines, and printed photographs can also be repurposed to create new items. I know many of you have used different things when you create your projects! It does add variety to our designs!
Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope you like my ideas and are inspired to create something different!
Wishing all the dads a wonderful Father’s Day! Thank you for providing positive guidance to your children and loving them for who they are. Enjoy this special day set aside to honor you!
Happy Father’s Day!
