Origami Neckties – OWH Father’s Day

Here is a group of Origami Necktie cards that Trenton and I made again this year. I used scraps of cardstock for all of the shirts, and brads, buttons and Origami paper from my stash to create the cards. I will be shipping them off to Operation Write Home for Father’s Day cards. Trenton always folds the neckties for me and I create the shirts. We’re a good team! These are really fun cards. If you’d like to make some yourself, there here is a tutorial link for you to follow. It is a great way to use up your extra scraps of paper! Thanks for visiting.


OWH – Using Scraps – “You’re the Best”

  • Die cut – SEI “Field Notes: The Sample Box”
  • Stamp – Hero Arts “Everyday Sayings”
  • Cardstock – BoBunny dots (scraps!)
  • Trim from stash

This was a very simple card that I made from some of my many scrap pieces of cardstock and a few little extras! Over at Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps, we are challenging ourselves to use up some of our extra scraps and put them to good use on cards. There is a OWH tutorial to give you a little direction along these lines as well! So let this be a challenge to you: go forth and use up some of those precious scraps! I will post more cards using up left-overs here as well. Thanks for stopping by today!
