Remember this guy from last week?
Well, since I had so many comments about them at my market, and the market manager even ordered a special one (which I just managed to make!), I figured I'd attempt to be a good crafter and use up some of the remnants of those papers. I mean, I could save them for next year ... well, I could, but there will some new, fantabulous paper out next year that will make me forget all about this stuff, so I thought I'd use it now. (Psst - I secretly just didn't want to have to put it away. There, I've said it.)
I had all sorts of 5" pieces left over from cutting the 12x12 pieces at 7" last week, so I tried to work with those. Here's what came out.
First up - a square in the same fashion as the original, just ... square:
I decided to not fight it and I just used one of the small images instead of sweating about fitting three on there. I kinda like how it came out. Oh, and yes, I know that ribbon is crooked on every stinking one of these, so you don't need to point that out to me, k?
Here's another with a different Mad Hatter image:
Next I made some A2 sized with two images:
I was at a loss what to do with those Hallowe'en Wonderland images, and I like how these turned out. You can still see the lace on either side.
Here's another one:
Then things went awry. I had a stack of 6 5x5 pieces of that background paper, so I did the math and knew I needed to cut them in half at 2.5". Unfortunately, I didn't think it through thoroughly, and cut it in the wrong direction, so I had vertical patterns. Sigh.
Sigh. I cut 6 of the bases, but I only made one or two with this SIDEWAYS paper. The rest got set aside. I might make them for my Craft Show next weekend, or I might not. I am officially sick of this paper now.
In other news, the weather is FANTASTIC and it should be a great day for the market tomorrow. I hope your weather is as nice as it is here. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
