Instead of spending tons of money on cards for birthdays, I've been making fun cupcake cards! I use paper piecings from Scrapbooksetc.com and a bunch of different papers to give the cards a variety of looks! These cards are also a great way to use up scraps. They're fun and easy to make and the people who I give them to love them!
Here's one I made for a 16th birthday. More to follow!
