A Bunch of Stuff to Share

In case you haven't gotten around to making something for Girl's Day yet, here's a really quick idea (well..the basic idea is really simple, but it's very easy to get carried away with extra stuff!!). It's a card that's held shut with the sakura flower on the bottom.

Open up to reveal your Girl's Day message:

Here's a closer look...looks like they're performing on stage!!

To make this card just cut a 3-3/4" x 10" piece of card stock...score at (are you ready for this?) 1/4", 1", 2", 2-3/4", 5-3/4" and 6-1/2". Below is a view from the side...basically, you're just using the first 4 scored lines to form the base piece...and the next 2 scored lines to form the fold-over flap. Cut thin strips and fold, as shown below, to prop up your stamped images.

Stamps used: 3 girls and word stamps: MC-17 (Happy Girl's Day)
Cherry blossom branch and flowers: CL-11 (Keiko)
Large cherry blossom: CL-1 (Happy Wishes)

Of course, I had to do one for Easter too...

Same instructions as the Girl's Day card...but here are the measurements to make this one: 2-1/2" x 12" piece of card stock...scored at 1/4", 1", 2", 2-3/4", 7-1/4", 8". I cut the lollipop stick a little shorter so the proportion is better. To attach I placed a glue dot on the bunny's hand...stuck on the lollipop...added another glue dot to the lollipop stick and stuck on the bunny's "extra hand". I also used a pop dot behind the actual candy part of the lollipop to help support the weight.

Stamps used: Bunny and words: MC-18 (Happy Easter)
Large flower: CL-10 (Flowers)

Now it's time for a little show and tell...Laura from California sent me a picture of the favors she made for Girl's Day...aren't they so sweet? And the chopsticks go so well with the theme!!

Next up is another cute creation from the papers she used for the kimonos and fans!!!

And last, but not least is Patti's Girl's Day creation:
