I made these cards after seeing something similar in my blog hopping. I made them all the same way different pattern paper packs. I love how they turned out. Hopefully the recipients will love them just as much! I think I would love anything that involved this chocolate bunny!

I bought this bird house at Target in their dollar bin. I knew I had to get it to alter. Its amazing how much you can actually spend in the "dollar bin" ! There are so many possibilities.

I found these ABC board books in a 3 pack at the dollar store. I decided I would play around and see what happened. I made this for my niece Kaylee. I think next time I will slice the pages apart then cover them. They dont close very well with all the paper in it. Will look really cute on her shelf with pic of the family in it. She lives in NC and us in NY :(

I saw these on a  Stampin Up! site for Demonstrators. I just knew I had to give them a try. I love them. Thanks to whoever I saw them from.
It uses the Daisies #2 die cut, you need 4 of each size. I wrapped a bendy straw with ribbon for the stem. I dont know how long it will hold, I may make more but use a large brad in the center to hold the staw on and then cover the back with a circle to hide the brad.


This card is so fun. I dont know if this is the true name for it though.

                                               Stamps: Winter Post and Musical Notes wheel
