A New Use for Mulberry Paper

I've seen everyone making such beautiful layered flowers with fabric, patterned paper, tissue, etc. I found some old mulberry paper in my piles of stuff and decided to give it a try myself. I used some orange and some brown mulberry paper, and cut out several sizes of Nesties Blossoms Two shapes. There are 6 layers of each size, attached with a fancy brad in the center. In real life, it just pops off the page! It will definitely need a padded envelope and extra postage, but it's worth it.

I was in the mood to make a fall card, and scrounged up my last scraps fo this Crate Paper striped pp. Not that I don't have new fall paper to use (I found an entire paper caddy of pp that I never unpacked!). I eked out a few of the rick rack shape (die from MFT) and used the rest of it on some cards I'll show tomorrow.

I hope you had a beautiful weekend. It's been gorgeous weather-wise for us. We had a huge yard sale Saturday, so my crafting time was cut out last week, and hubby was out of town all week. Yesterday, he let me take a few hours to hole up in my craft room and I cranked out several cards. I'm hoping to catch up with all the laundry today and be able to sneak back up during naptimes. Wish me luck!

Thanks for looking!
