Swappin' Postage Thingys
Yep, signed up for yet another swap. I need more of those like I need another hole in my head.
But it was for a cute idea so I had to get in on it too.
The swap is hosted by dhayes1 on Splitcoaststampers, and the idea is to make a little holder for your return postage. Its such a neat idea! The un-creative me, has always just stuck it in the envelope willy-nilly. Now what kind of a stamper am I?!
There's still plenty of time to join, so if you wanna.... HERE is the link.
I used some Pacific Point DSP from stampin' up & I didn't have any stamps that said "postage" or anything remotely related. So I opted not to stamp them up. I cut the PP into 6x6 inch squares and simply did a diaper fold. They were SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy and they whipped up SOOOOOOOOOOOOO quickly! I finished them off with a giant Prima flower, tied some white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around it, and accented it with a sparkly star secured with Crystal Effects.
I love using Crystal effects to secure tiny things. You can squirt out a little bit, it dries quickly, and boy is it ever secure!!
yes, that is the same manicured thumb stuck inside the holder. And wouldn't ya believe it? yes, I broke that very nail! I tell ya, if something bad is gonna happen, I am the prime candidate for it to happen to! Oh well..... guess I just need to go pamper myself at the salon again, and get it fixed!
Always look on the bright siiiiide of life... do do.. do do do do do do.......
