If you’re like me and like to use every piece from the PFP planner kit, I have a project for you. I am going to show you how to repurpose your information card into an adorable donut (or even Valentine’s Day) greeting card. If you don’t have the information card, or already used it, the regular paper from the kit works just fine too.
Let’s get started with our supply list. You will need:
— 1 cardstock piece measuring at 8 x 6 (folded in half to 4 x 6) — your information card (I cut mine down to 3.5 x 5.5 with a 2.5 x 3 window cut out. I used my silhouette but I kept it a rectangle so that it could be easily done with an xacto knife or scissors — a piece of acetate or even a plastic sleeve cut into a 3 x 3.5 square — confetti, sequins, sprinkles, seed beads, whatever you want to put into your shaker — some foam tape or squares — washi, ink and sticker decorations optional
The first thing I did was glue my acetate to my window piece. I used the tombow mono liquid aqua glue because it made it easier to be able to move it around before it dried (side note, it would have been easier to ink the card before I did this part but forgot because I was too excited for sprinkles).
Because I like to ink the sides of things to give them more dimension, I inked the outside of the card as well as the inside of the frame with a purple ink (this was included with the October PFP planner kit). It didn’t dry very fast so it did get ink everywhere but it just gave it more character.
To make sure that the little shaker bits actually shake, you have to add dimension to the card. For that, I used the tombow foam tape. You can also use foam squares. For the outside of the window, I cut the tape in half to make it thinner and then put thicker strips at the bottom. Make sure that the square part is really tight though so that whatever you’re shaking in there doesn’t fall out.
I gathered everything I wanted to put into the shaker part into one area of the actual card. I included the sequins from the rosie_plans extra in the February kit, sequins from my personal stash and even real sprinkles. Once I have collected those, I put the top piece over it, just to make sure they will fit. Then turn it around and press firmly to secure the shakers in the window.
I decorated the front by layering some glitter washi (all from the popfizzpaper store), donut stickers, a “the sweet life” sticker and some rhinestones to add some bling.
Add a little note inside, stick it in an envelope and send it (or hand it) to your favorite person!
