Hi everyone!!! I'm really not supposed to be here. I am super busy packing (not today though, today I rest) and I have all my paper crafting items in storage. Or so I thought. I was in the kitchen strumming away with my guitar while my little girl was scribbling "songs" when all of a sudden a bright idea came up. I said to myself, "maybe I can use Moriah's markers to decorate TP for the EBTKS Challenge" (which is being hosted by Kelly Marie). I know pretty random. So the guitar was set aside and my daughter and I headed to the restroom for some TP. She took her portion and I grabbed mine and to the kitchen we went. There already on the kitchen island were these items:
When you are moving you usually have markers, paper, twine, scissors just your usual packaging and labeling stuff. So I used just that. No stamps, inks, cutting system, etc. Just what is shone in the image above. As far as cardstock, my husband had a few spare pieces in his office. So I grabbed one and off I went to get crafty.
My creation, a very, very simple TP butterfly thank you card. Now how cool is that to know you can create a card and be pleased with it using absolutly nothing from your craft stash. So there you have it a hand drawn swirl, with a hand written sentiment (I wrote it first with pencil then traced with pen) some TP and twine. A bit of marker printed polka dots and set to go :) I used the lighter to burn the edges and give it a distress feel. And I used the same pink marker to color the twine.
I don't complain for not being able to purchase new crafting goodies... I'm embracing the opportunity to think more creatively ;)
Hope you were inspired to use untraditional items for your next project :)
Cardstock: White basic
Other: pen, pencil, scissors, cement glue (the only thing I have), twine, markers (brown, pink), lighter, TP
