365 Cards: Trendy

Today’s Challenge on http://365cards.blogspot.com/ is to add something to your card that is trendy.  I used bakers twine to thread through the botton which is really popular right now.  The thread is inexpensive and adds instant character to your cards.  Buttons and ribbon are my all time favorites, and I added an element that I’ve only seen a few times around that I think should be a new trend: “Bobby Pins”.   Everyone is wearing them in their hair…why not on a card!  The card recipient can take it off and keep it as a gift and wear it in rememberance of you!  I found this bobby pin at a store called Forever 21 in the mall    On clearance a pack of 7 pins was only $2.99 which is cheap as far embellishments go.

I started paper crafting in 1995 when I first tried embossing with powder, I was so excited and couldn't believe it was so easy to make something so beautiful. Creativeseconds was started as a way of selling secondhand craft supplies and cards on Ebay and Etsy. You will find creative cards, tags, and paper crafting projects here as well as craft room organizational ideas. Follow along with me and comments are welcomed and appreciated.
