Last week, we shared a Throwback Thursday tutorial that showed you how to make our monthly Time to Flourish Desk Calendar.  I used up almost every bit of the 8×8 and 12×12 papers in that project.  But I had one sweet image, a border strip, and a few small pieces of patterned paper left on my desk as well as some cardstock bits left over.  This sweet card iw what I ended up making with all those bits and bobs.

All the patterned papers, cardstock mats and even the card base were what I had left to work with.  I also had a small “goodie bag” that The Funkie Junkie Boutique sent with a recent order.  The filigree heart, paper doll and die cut cardstock hearts were in that. A Melissa Frances Resin Crown (retired) from my stash,  Little Birdie Flowers, ribbon and a bit of lace rounded out the card design.

A Peek Inside

Isn’t it amazing what you can do with just a pile of paper scraps?

TIP: Create a “paper doll” pocket with the row of postage stamps from the 8×8 pad.  Just place a tiny dot of adhesive on the sides and bottom then adhere to the base.  Then tuck in the little sentiment cut aparts.  You could even write a secret message on the back of each one.
