Big projects, part 2

My friend and fellow crafter, Sarah, recently requested an order of 40 holiday cards for her coworkers at Allan Hancock College. After tossing around several ideas that would fit her budget, we landed on the design of ornaments hanging from ribbon, all in Hancock blue and yellow.

I was fortunate enough to have two circle punches of just the right sizes, so I didn't have to cut out all the circles with scissors...

Big projects, part 1

I've had my hands full with custom orders lately, which is why I haven't had time to blog about my latest projects... Now that I've finished one of the two biggest orders, I can share it with you.

A friend from church asked me to make ornaments for all the children in our congregation. It turned out that when she called, I happened to be making paper ornaments with my mom, so I had several ideas to draw from. I chose this old-fashioned fan ornament with scalloped edges. I made 42 of these, complete with the kids' names, our church's name, and the year.
