I love giving homemade cards. Come to think of it I like giving homemade... everything! I especially like cards though, they are a simple way to add a nice thoughtful touch. Recently I found myself needing to make 8 cards for 8 lovely ladies but I was a little pressed for time. I thought of just using this pack of cards I found at the dollar section of Jo-ann but then I wondered if there was a quick and easy way to spice them up a little bit.
Yes, yes there was :)
I used this tutorial to make the flowers. Believe me when I say that these are easy. Just a bit of cutting, rolling, a dab of hot glue to secure and you have yourself a lovely little rosette.
I made a bunch of these pretty flowers (I especially like the book page ones) and cut out some leaves.
Then just glued them to the cards, done! Now my dollar pack of cards had a nice homemade touch and they only took a little time to make.
Here are some other dollar pack cards that I added a few simple elements to to make them pop. It is a nice solution/shortcut if you don't have much time to spare.
