These are holiday papers. Shhh!
Since nobody ever said "Wow, I ordered EXACTLY THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF PAPER," I'm guessing you might have some leftovers. Here's how I cooked mine up to make a gorgeous monochromatic birthday card for a coworker.
The layout was inspired by a card I saw over on Brian's blog this morning. (Yes, I stamp in my pjs. Stop judging.) You'll see that I went off-road pretty fast -- there's no ribbon, and I couldn't fit the third block of paper. Instead, I made the cutest little flag, and I brought in some washi.
Do you love it? I love it. The inside of the card is cute, too -- to balance the weight, I layered in a white pane with a matching washi stripe.
Your challenge for the weekend: Use some of your own holiday paper to make a non-holiday card. Can you do it? I think you can!
