Crafting on the Go

>> Tuesday, December 13, 2011

The first weekend in December I found myself headed to the curling rink to watch my daughter in her first ever bonspiel. I knew I would have a lot of time on my hands and my four year old son!
A perfect opportunity to try out my idea to make these little cards.
I had postcard size cardstock from the dollar store and a whole bunch of leftover half square triangles from making my Primitive Joy tabletopper.
I couldn't part with them, but I really don't have time to sew anything out of them.

I stuffed the triangles into this handy tin and a little gluestick - which fits perfectly!
Very handy tin! 
The cardstock I put into a plastic baggie and shoved them both in my travel bag.
{I'm a mom - do I really dare call it a purse when half the stuff in it isn't for me!LOL}
My son and I made trees and houses with the triangles.
With bigger cardstock I think we could have made pinwheels or snowflakes.
I'm planning to use the cards as gift tags and to send school portraits in the mail.

This is the only card made by my son that made it home. 
He made lots of log cabins - a triangle for the roof and drew in the logs. 
He handed them out to the people who run the curling rink. The counter top was full!
{He also drew them several 'posters' of hotdogs for sale. I think he made a few friends} 
If you look closely, you can see he drew ornaments on his tree too.

I hope you find some time to keep the magic of the season alive.

My giveaway is still open until the 17th.
for your chance to win!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Great idea, Sarah! I save my triangles too and have wondered what to do with them. Might be a fun thing to do with Nova today as he is home sick with a nasty cough.
Will one of your cards be making its way to our house?
