Celebrating St. Patrick's Day

Did you happen to see the instructions for making an accordion flower on page 5 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog? I finally tried making one today, and ended up using it on a card for Weekend Sketch Challenge #72 (posted on Jenn’s blog today). Combined with the Going Green Ways to Use It challenge on SCS, the end result was a St. Patrick’s Day card!

Next time I make an accordion flower, I will score the 1″ x 12″ strip of paper every quarter inch (instead of every half inch) to make the flower stick out less. Not that I would ever even try to mail a card like this one!

Thanks for stopping by!
