If you'll recall, the following was a Paper Pumpkin kit from a few months past. Pretty cute. The accordion-folded thank you card sports an orange felt letter on each "page", which, when opened fully, spells out THANKS.
The other night, I randomly picked one of my bright red Paper Pumpkin boxes that still contained leftovers from the kits that I had never quite used up, with the intent of creating something from the ingredients found therein.
Inside the random box, COMPLETELY UNUSED, were the sheets of self-stick orange letters. Oh my.
I stared and stared at the letters, scrambling them every which way, trying to make an alternate word. But, unfortunately, I could not come up with anything meaningful to put on the front of a card.
So, I went out on a limb and created a card -- a THANK YOU card. Weird, huh?
Of course, my format is considerably different from what the kit instructions wanted me to do. Mine is a traditional landscape card.
The backdrops for each of the letters were stamps from a long ago Paper Pumpkin kit. I did incorporate the same colors, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party, with the orange, for my color scheme.
In order to fit the letters on the front of a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card, I needed to trim a bit off the top and bottom of each letter. The only letter that "suffers" from this surgery though is the "s".
I added some punched-out Daffodil Delight stars hither and thither to give it a bit more zip.
Now, don't you agree that the recipient of this card will feel like I am sending them a really BIG thank you!?
Let's move back into the past a bit. If you recall, I used components from this kit in a previous project: PAPER PUMPKIN THANKS REPURPOSED.
Following are two paragraphs from that post:
Now, here is my problem. And I would love your input: Do you ever have Instagram prints made commercially? If so, where do you have them done? I am interested in 2" square prints, or somewhere around that size.
If you would like to see my assortment of photos I am going to be choosing from, here is the link to my Instagram account. While you are there, do you have any opinions of which photos I should put in my Paper Pumpkin book?
I know I had promised to share with you the end result of my little photo experiment. Unfortunately, I have only been able to find an affordable resource for 4" x 4" prints, which, of course, are much too large for this diminutive photo album.
So, if you have an answer to my dilemma (in red) for a resource for 2" x 2" prints, I would LOVE to hear from you.
