Giving From the Heart

In the CEF of Smith County there are lots of people who volunteer their time and talent to make the local chapter a success.  To show my appreciation to these wonderful folks, I like to send them a homemade card.  I believe that when they receive something as thoughtful as a card that I have designed with them in mind, they understand how valued they are in my eyes. 
Here are a few of the cards that I will send to those who have helped this week. 

For each card, I used the same basic design.  This design came from MOJO Monday's Sketch 194.  I  added stitching, ric-rac and brads.  I am easily bored so on each of these examples  I changed the focal point a bit. Each one features a tea-bag fold done in a complimentary B&T paper. 

Someone recently asked for a tutorial on tea-bag folding.  Instead of trying to shoot pics (I have a really cheapo camera), and explain it, I thought I would link you to a few tutorials that I have used.

Paper Printables

These sights are great!  You can also search out more sights by using the keywords tea bag folding and/or kaleidoscope fold.  If you find something really great, I would love for you to share it with me.

Until then..Happy Scrappin,
