The Tiniest of Scraps...

Putting paper scraps together to make greeting cards is about as much fun as doing the same with fabric scraps for quilts. The downside is even more tiny scraps to manage and store. I made these two cards as samples for the crafting program I volunteer for at a women's prison. Both are simple designs because we have limited cutting tools and supplies for making the cards. But that hasn't stopped us.


The design for this card came from the Operation Write Home website. They provide dozens of sketches for card layouts. This organization is the destination for the cards we're making. So we've made both pattern and freestyle designs, and we're close to mailing out our first selection of cards. There's lots of satisfaction in cardmaking.

How nice, Nancy! And so great you are working with the ladies making these!! Where do they get their materials from? do they need donations?

Looks like a great project, another win/win. Good for the women making them and good for the heroes receiving them.
