Is always another man's treasure. That is, these CD's were going in the trash, that is, until I got ahold of them. Isn't this just cute. This was the first wall-hanging I made and it was actually a gift I gave for Christmas but I forgot to blog it after the giftee received it. Can you tell I am proud?!? TeeHee. The paper covering the CD's were from My Mind's Eye Bohemian Style I believe. The letters are chipboard from Making Memories and some of the letters are matted with white dollies from Wal-Mart.
So, you will notice there are two different pattern papers; one striped and one plain. Those letters that are mounted on the stripped paper have a white dolly underneath them while those mounted on the solid light-blue paper are not. The letters without dollies have ribbons attached to give them a bit of flair. I just love these ribbons. I found them for 10/$10 at my LSS and I believe they are by American Traditions. I'm not positive since I have used all the ribbon since then :D Does that mean I need to take a trip??? tee-hee. For each of the CD's I used my crop-a-dile to punch holes, fill with eyelets, and then string the CD's together using binder rings. Afterwards I added ribbon to the binder rings. I couldn't believe how fun these are and how simple they can be. This particular one took about 15 minutes.
So, I needed a couple of thank you cards that were simple and sweet. This is what I come up with. The flowers are from Nicole Stamps and were colored with Bic Sharpies. I added some stems and there you have it. I really liked how these came out. I took a photo playing with my new lighting system I have.
Mahalo for stopping by!
