Everyone has favorite images saved on their computer, just because. So take a few of your favorite pictures, sandwich them between plastic laminates or clear plastic sheets from recycled products and make some interesting gift tags or book markers with the help of your sewing machine and left over bits and bobs of ribbon, buttons or bows. (Clear plastic sheets can be purchased at any craft store.)
Images are held between clear plastic pages, then stitched to separate pictures. Cut beside the stitching lines to create open topped envelopes.
Now an enclosure card, your business card, or just a quick "thank you" note can be slipped into the opening of the card you made.
Here are a dozen made within an hour. (Be sure to discard your needle after sewing because the plastic will dull the point of the needle when sewing through the plastic.)
Joining in Finished Objects Friday and Fiber Arts Friday, here is a finished Looped Loop cowl made from Shetland hand dyed and hand spun wool. It was completed right before going to Phoenix for the Scrabble tournament, but it was too warm there to wear it. Never fear, more snow will blow in Colorado this March, so it will get lots of use.
