Which reminds me of Dan's graduation (Dec 2008). Below is the original that I was half way making, about 25, for her when I started to play with the burgundy coloured card and it just popped and looked so awesome that I just changed the whole thing there and then.Below is the final product. I bought pre-made tassels from Ikes Emporium and used the Tassel Time SU set. I also used 'shrinky dink' to incorperate the line: 'The tassel was worth the hassel' which I thought was way cute.
I made Lillian (Dan's roomie and best friend) a batch as my gift to her. Ren went over to the ceremony for us and stayed with Timo. Apparently the recipients loved the cards so much they asked if the designer does wedding invites. . . but that's a whole 'nother story lol.
PS: Smile, You - is the title of the current kdrama that I am watching lol. It just seemed an approprite title for this comeback. hahahahahaha!

We got so carried away surfing the net for bargains when we met for this class that we had to take our tins home to make up. This is what everyone brought back on our next meet. The bigger tins were coffee tins discarded at work after use and rescued from the bin.

Tuihana showed us how to make this card. Very simple and fun. The above sample was made by Joeleen for fathers day. When you prise open the middle section of the card - a whole new section is revealed. 1. Measurements are: 5 1/2" x 8 1/4" for the main card and strips: 2" x 5 1/2" Stamp your desired background images on both sides of card. 2. Lay card on landscape position: score 2 1/8" from either side. 3. Make half inch slits one inch from top and bottom. 4. Weave the strips into the slits. . . .so that one sits above and the other below. 5. Close the sides inward and fold the whole thing back into itself. . . . . and score well. 6. Prise the middle open to use the hidden section. The more you open and close it the easier it is to use. Good luck. Thanx Tuihana - this is a fun and useful card. Love it!

Here is our third entry. The colour combo just fell into place once I teamed up the specialty light blue and gold paper with mellow moss. The stamp set is Delight in Life. The ribbon poking out from the top inset wasn't glued in so I was glad to see it had survived the journey in the magazine.
