A journey of daily creativity....
Now that I am finished the Place in Time calendars, I really wanted to do something else for my next project.
I have been making and sending cards out (along with my ladies at ScrapbookPlace) to the troops for some years now. I think about five years. The first group that was sending cards overseas found it necessary to close. So, I decided that we will start participating in Operation Write Home. (For more info on OWH, click on the link.) I've already sent in a box full of cards in May and time to send in another box.
I decided to make some cards using scraps and odd pieces of paper. I was able to make 30 cards for about .75 a card and used up a lot of scraps and odd pieces of paper. Win, win, win!!!
Here are some of the cards I made.
It took me two days to finish the project, as I had a vampire appointment on Friday and was gone for half the day. It was fun and love how they came out! Plus, I was able to ship another 140 cards to Operation Write Home for the troops! It's worth it!!!
I hope this gives you some inspiration to get those scraps out and use them up for a great cause!
Hope you have a creative day!
