I HOPE to feature a new, fun crafter every week...and not only that...each crafter will be showing YOU that you DO have time for creating beautiful things.
Each Tuesday will feature a fun new craft tutorial that takes about twenty minutes or so.
Are you ready?
paint color chips
invitation sized envelopes (or whatever you have)
sewing machine (or needle and thread)
If you have standard invite sized envelopes this will give you
TWO cards from each piece of cardstock.
If you have a different sized envelope you can adjust cardstock size as needed.
Fold in half.
...stitch a heart shape on your paint chip.
(you CAN do this by hand but it will take longer than 20 minutes).
The paint chips that I had (from Lowe's) were the perfect size without trimming but you may need to trim yours. If you would like...you can lightly trace the heart shape on first.
EDITED TO ADD:
Someone made an anonymous comment about my use of paint chips and how they felt wrong about my using them for craft purposes, even if they are free.
If you have been following this blog for very long you would know two things...
1) I shop at Lowe's A LOT.
2) I buy a lot of paint from them. I do not feel bad about taking several paint chips in various colors when I am trying to find the right color or shade. What I would feel bad about is just throwing them away when I have made a paint decision.
