Today's creative project is brought to you by a typewriter, a Christmas crackers and a vague knowledge of Minecraft. Don't ever say I don't make the effort ...
Early in 2013 I shared a few cards I'd made using the plastic gifts I'd saved from my Christmas crackers and some people said they wished I'd mentioned it earlier so they could have saved their tacky treasures. So how does 6 months notice suit you? Because I've got another one for you today, plus links [at the end of this post] to all the others, in case you want a reminder.]
For the record: this kind of card only really works with the cheapy, pointless, kinds of cracker gifts ... if your family splashes out on those fancy ones filled with chocolate ... or silver charms etc ... you might not want to use those on your cards ... ;-)
Anyway ... here's the card in question:
I used a 3D foam pad to add the puzzle piece to the card and typed out a sentiment:
If you enjoyed today's project: ...

- Make a note to save up those cracker gifts this year ... or try a similar idea with old game + puzzle pieces.
- Dig out your embossing folders and see what they can add to your next card.
