Cool card

Day 11 - 365. Hey, I'm getting into this. Challenge today was titled "Repurposed" because even though a patterned paper was designed for a specific holiday or season, that doesn't mean it isn't suitable for another purpose. So the specific challenge is to do just that -- find some paper in your stash that was intended for one holiday/season and give it a new life.

I've chosen some snowflake paper that I've had for many years. Because when in sunny, never ever snows Perth and I gonna get to use it, right? I folded it up and made little fans because we've been having a heat wave and I've been using a lovely little blue and white fan to keep cool. So there is even a personal side to this one.



Again, excuse the photography. Top one taken indoors, bottom one outdoors. Wrong time of day for photos. Hopefully you can see the dimension.

  2. :D What a way to think 'cool' It may not be an actual heat wave here on the west coast of Canada, but I'm at that age where I have my own personal heat waves occasionally... and a good fan comes in handy!
