Happy Spring

 
For my design team project at The Cutting Cafe this week, I picked a very cute cutting file called
 Tall Flower Shaped Cards.  Also used the envelope from the String And Button Envelope Set.
This is a very easy project to make and a great way to use up small scraps of left over print papers.
 
(Note: Normally you would use eyelets for the string closure on the envelope, but I didn't have the right color in my stash, so I used white brads instead of the eyelets.)
 
Supplies used:

The Cutting Cafe Files:

McGill Tag Punch, white cardstock, red, yellow, green print papers
Crystal Stickers black pearls, black button, brads, crochet thread
