Birthday Cards & Tags

By Lea Muskotevc aka Memories By Lea


“Hello Graphic 45 crafters!


Today I would like to share with you a set of two greeting cards and a tag. I created all the pieces with scraps that were left from the album I made with Fruit & Flora paper collection. 

So many times I hear frustration from crafters about all the scraps of papers and products that they are left with after completing a certain project, especially albums. No products should be wasted. With little imagination, you can always use those leftovers to create beautiful pieces like cards or tags.




This collection with beautiful florals and fruit images could be used to create beautiful birthday cards. Especially for someone that celebrates birthday during warm months. And summer is a perfect season to create with Fruit & Flora. I hope you have someone special in your life who celebrates in summer. 


Tip 1:

When adding chipboard pieces to your projects created from scratch I suggest wrapping edges of chipboard with some kind of material (washi tape,...).




Tip 2:

When creating a tag, use a chipboard as your base to make a tag more sturdy and durable.





Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read this blog post. Don’t forget to come back to see what I will be creating next.


If you would like to create these three pieces, watch a two-part step by step tutorial." ~Lea
