Seriously, Joann's sells these little packs (seen below) for only $1! They are little pieces of pre-cut paper that all match and that are PERFECT for quick cards. Some of the pieces have "pretty" edges that appear to be done with an edge punch. All you have to do is pick a few pieces that you want to use, cut them to the size you want and adhere to the card base that you pick. There will be a few more cards like this on the blog soon! These are so easy, quick and you know that all you need is this little pack of 10 sheets of random paper.
I don't know if you can tell from the picture but the bottom piece on the right side and the green strip I ran through my paper crimper just to add a little depth. The top piece that is stamped with the sentiment is glued down with pop dots to give a 3D effect.
It is as easy as cutting the pieces down to the size you need (it won't need much taken off of it), inked the edges, used the paper crimper, stamped the sentiment and adhered it all down. Then I added two pearls for a little embellishment. That's it!
Remember, your idea can come out of a $1 pack of paper, it can be quick and easy, and it just has to be homemade.
