2 minute Christmas cards....




i needed to make  some quick Christmas cards this year and was going to buy  normal size cards and cut them into half or 4  but when i was perusing Kmarts paper craft shelves i came across these little tiny cards and envelopes....perfect....i bought white cards [10 for $2.oo] and a mix of silver and white enves [same price]


now i love washi tapes and collect a few whenever i see them...... i only have small stash and i knew my woodgrain one [which is my absolute favorite], would come in handy one day :)  

you could however make a handmade version  using paper or fabric tape adhered onto double sided adhesive or a selection of ribbons and ric rac....

i think they look pretty cute, they hardly cost anything, no two are the same and they were super quick.....




  Take that Jamie Oliver !!!!!

[cept that he's making a fortune from his 15 min meals :)

Oh Jenxo, brilliant idea. You should submit this idea to one of the Cloth Paper Scissor mags called 10 minute cards or craftsor something like that . It's a magazine featuring items made in 10 min or less. Love your tapes. I must try this although I would be making my own tapes, they are ridiculous price here.
