Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - My Call



This weeks challenge over at The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is "Anything But A Card" and has been set by ME. Thought that we had all made our fair share of cards over the last few months and would be nice to try something different. A new technique perhaps! I found this tutorial a while back, below is the instructions. I used my Scor-It but any scoreboard will do.

cut your card stock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
score from the 8 1/2" side at 1 1/2", 4 1/2" and 7 1/2"
place your calendar onto cardstock and adhere to the base.
embellish as you like
fold on the score lines, attach some sticky strip to the 1" side and attach to form the bottom stand.

The calender was from a local craft shop, cardstock, flowers, brad, backing paper from stash and the little bird stamp is from Hero Arts. Basically I've used up spare bits for this project but shows what can be achieved from your bitty box. Please do check out the other DT's creations, there is some great inspiration to be found over at The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. Hope you can join us, would love to see what you come up with!
