This is what you can get when you reach out and grab a handful of what you already have.
The challenge this week on OPUS GLUEI is to reach out and grab what is within reach on your workdesk, then make something with what you have grabbed.
My workdesk is usually creatively cluttered. LOL So, I had a bunch of things within reach. Now the problem of what to make with my wonderful goodies. You know, those little bits or pieces that were intended for a project but didn't make the cut.
I thought about cards, but wasn't feeling it. Then I thought bookmarks, but since I have made about a gazillion in the last few months, I decided against that too. ATC's came to mind and I knew I had a winner. I grabbed that piece of cardstock and decided to make a set of 10.
I cut the cardstock as arranged above. Those little white pieces are the leftovers. I'll make 3 inchies out of the larger piece.
I used some gaffers tape and fabric tape to make the background pieces. I used the same pieces on the outside edges to unify the set. And a photo turn and brad on each one too.
My hubby sent me a romantic email the day I was typing the DYMO tape, so I was inspired to use this saying.
And a silver circle on each one too.
And a bit of DYMO tape on each one also.
Can you believe I had so many different bits lying around?
Even the stamps were in reach on my table.
Since I am playing along in a couple of Christmas card challenges I had some Christmas items, so I made a Christmas ATC.
Not all of them are themed, but, they all have something with wings on them.
They all make me happy.
My middle daughter thought up this one.
She even helped by making the DYMO tape for me.
She loves this quote, and has claimed this ATC as her own.
Think you are up to the challenge this week???
