Remember last week， when I told you about the whole big box of wonderful that I received from Canvas Corp？ Well， here’；s another project I created with some of the goodies I received…；accent pillow case baby burlap boudoir
Now let me backtrack just a little…；a few months agopersonalized gifts for kids， I posted my Forty before 40 list. One of the items on this list is to send birthday cards to friends and family…；I’；ve already failed…；miserably. BUT， I WILL get better…；now that I have this super-duper handy-dandy organizing system.This is what I started with：
Then I cut a piece of the scrapbook paper to size and DecouPage’；d it onto the bottom of the drawer…；
Yes…；the paper is a bit wrinkly…；no， I’；m not the best DecouPage’；r…；admittedly…；I used the individual month dividers that came with the drawer to organize the different cards I will need throughout the year.Then I made a couple of postcards using Canvas Corppaper…；I like to have a couple on hand to use for a quick note or thank-you…；
One sheet of the 12×；12 paper had these wonderful vintage-style postcard templates on it…；then I simply cut two other sheets with patterns and colors I liked to size， and attached them to what would be the front of the post card. So fast &； so easy. And completely personal. I think I may eventually add some other embellishments to the front of the postcards， but they are ready-to-go as-is if I decide to leave them alone.
I now have this drawer sitting right on the main surface of my hutch in my craft area…；easy to find…；no more excuses for not sending correspondence…；I hope.
