Hi friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing a project filled with kindness! My assignment was to create a project based on “giving” or “receiving” and I chose giving, of course! My favorite thing to GIVE is a kind word or a bit of encouragement. Whenever I can use paper and glue to make those words into a little gift, I call it a double win!
I used the “This is Family” collection to create this set of cards. I knew I wanted to make a bunch, so I kept the design pretty simple. I started by cutting several different papers into 3 3/4″ squares. Next, I cut half of those squares in half diagonally. I used my sewing machine to stitch each half square onto a full square, right up the middle.
Then I cut apart all of the 3″ squares on the cut-apart sheet in the collection. I placed one square in the center of each stitched piece.
Finally, I attached each piece to a 4″ square card cut from white cardstock. I also added a sticker or die cut to some of the card fronts.
My plan is to write notes to some of the special people in my life, telling them WHY I think they are special, why I am thankful for them, and what makes them so great! I hope they appreciate hearing a kind word as much as I know I would! I plan to share a card or two each day from now until Thanksgiving. 🙂
What gifts do YOU like to give? Kind and encouraging words are always a good choice!
Happy Thanksgiving Season!
