Mini cards




These mini cards (3x3") are going to be attached to the flowers for my son's preschool teachers. This was my first time making these mini cards, o... it was so fun!! This is fast, easy and the butterflies are super cute. I can just see myself making more of these :)
Really, this is literally under 10 minute card. You should try making these 3x3 cards. It will make cute gift card or to dress up any gift bag or presents or flower bouquets :) Let me know when you make these, ok?

The butterfly die makes 6 butterflies in 4 different shapes at one time. So I cranked up a few and have them sit by my desk- ready to go anytime. You can layer them easily in any color combo.

Thanks for stopping by- have a happy creating day :)
