Little Scraps, Fun Messages

jill here....on a recent road trip out west, I toted a large bag of fun fabrics, cutting supplies, adhesive and purchased plain note cards with envelopes (you can find them at the local hobby shop). This is a great indoor project just in case the weather isn't cooperating. Even older kids might enjoy creating a special card.  We had fun picking fabrics and experimenting with different methods and color combinations.

 Notecards and envelopes.
Four fabrics with variety of prints and scale. These were
cut approximately the size of the card and then
backed with a sheet of " iron on" bonding material.

The fabrics were directly stacked one on top of the other.
Three cuts were made with a rotary cutter,
through all four layers

The fabrics were rearranged with each fabric appearing.
Once the composition was determined,
they were bonded to the card with careful heat application.

Four little cards.
The design could be smaller to accommodate
 writing a message on the front. 

Novelty fabrics work great to fussy cut.

Fun results with colorful combinations
Sometimes glue works better with the smaller pieces.

Transparency experiments with four fabrics.

Transparency plaids and modern designs.
Enjoy your day.  'till next Tuesday....
