First Real Greeting Card Effort

There was a baby shower this week. I could not knit so I tried making some note cards.  They were very fun to make.

Here is a short video to see how they turned out.  You can even see the homemade stick'em on the envelope flaps!

Envelopes to Order!

So, it is such a nice thing when you put a video up on YouTube and someone asks you to make some envelopes having actually WATCHED that video!

This morning as soon as I crawled out of bed I decided that it was the first day of a new year so I would be productive immediately.  I made 25 envelopes for the friend who watched the video and said she could use them.

Here is a picture of them:

25 envelopes using the Envelope Punch Board and some paper from Joann Fabrics and Crafts which I will name shortly..

So far I have been having fun with the envelope punch board. I think I am going to try to make a box for the envelopes using the board.  There are LOTS of videos by clever people on YouTube.

If you want to look at that newest video--a first effort with the new camera just to see if it could be done so I left in all the bloopers and other warts---here is the place to click.
