All I had to do after cutting it all out on my Cricut was glue it together & add a wiggly eye. Super easy! I haven't put a message on the inside yet because I'm not sure what I'm going to use this card for yet. Thanks for coming back to see what I made!
Ok, now I'm off to craft something! I hope yall have a wonderful afternoon & hopefully I'll be back soon with new crafts or snow pictures.

Next up I have some glass tile pendants I've been making. This first one is the LSU Tigers fleur de lis. You can wear it on a chain or tie it onto a zipper or purse strap.
The tiles are 1 inch square. They look so much larger in pictures than they really are. Below I have the fleur de lis tied to my purse.
Here's my Wizard of Oz pendant. I just love that movie. I put gold ribbon on it to match the yellow brick road.
Again, I tied this one onto my purse to take a picture. It doesn't match with my colors, but I still like it. Since when am I concerned about matching anyway?
Thanks for checking out my goodies. I'm gonna post these on Etsy too. I need to sell some so I can buy more to make. Have a great evening!

These are mini envelopes made out of pages from a 1934 cookbook. I used the bread section for these 3 envelopes.
Aren't they super cute! The envelopes are a beautiful old color. I cut plain notecards to go in each one out of offwhite cardstock & the color matched perfectly.
One of the greatest features is that you read most of the recipe in case you wanted to try it out. I think these envelopes will be perfect for all kinds of things. They'd be really great to attach to a gift of kitchen gadgets, or to write a little thank you note for someone who had brought you dinner after a surgery or illness.
Ok, here are the specifics. The envelopes are almost 4 inches wide by 3 1/8 inches tall & the note cards are 3 2/3 inches wide by 3 inches tall. I plan on listing these on Etsy tonight. I listed the music envelopes after I made them, but they haven't sold yet. As long as I'm having fun making them, I'm not gonna stress about selling. Have a great evening & hopefully I'll be back soon with more fun stuff I've made lately!
