Using Household Items on Cards

If you make crafts for long enough, soon everything starts looking like a viable craft supply.  I look at my kitchen supplies differently, and scraps and packaging becomes infinitely more interesting.  I love to throw stuff away and declutter, but if a scrap has the slightest bit of visual or textural interest, it gets thrown into a pile of stuff to craft with "later". 

One of the current challenges over at Moxie Fab World is to use common household supplies in a paper craft.  I have been hanging on to some colored paper reinforcers forever knowing that one day they would make a fun craft or card.  Here is what I came up with: 

The repeated geometric pattern on this card is also on trend.  Not only did I create the pattern on the card with the circles, but I used them to create a scallop border around the sentiment.  Fun, huh? 

Go on, dive into your stash of office goodies and make a craft!
