Now for my project using a few of the new releases!! First of all I used a layered garden flower to make this super quick and cute card to celebrate an upcoming graduation or a birthday or even Mother's Day! Take a look!
I used a bright sunny yellow background sheet from a DCWV stack called Handy-Dandy.
I put the flower on with a pop dot, inked the edges of the background piece and punched a banner and stamped Celebrate (CTMH) A versatile card to add to my stash of the busy month of May.... Now take a look at another project I did with some of the new release buttons! This would be a super end of the year gift for a teacher, a great organizer to keep track of family's schedules, even a Mother's Day present for MOM or a special friend.. Let me tell you how I made it and you can make 10 of the bases for less than $3.00.. a great summer project for a scout program, or youth activity or to keep the kids busy on a rainy day!

I purchased a package of metal flashing 5 x 7 squares at our local hardware store. 10 in a package for less than $3.00....I used the heavy duty tape to border one side. I cut a piece of DCWV background paper (you could do in school colors, group colors, to match room décor) at 5 1/2 x 7 1/2. I laid the metal flashing onto the paper, (tape still covered) and snipped off the corners at an angle to give me a nice clean corner when the paper was folded back. I removed the tape cover, folded the paper over, then cut another 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and covered the metal showing on the back side. I used my Chomper to punch holes in the upper corners. You could adhere a magnet strip to the back for a locker organizer. I added a bright sunny yellow dotted ribbon and knotted the corners in the front. I cut a 4 3/4 by 2 inch strip and stamped Notes (CTMH) or you could personalize with a name, or Don't Forget, etc.
I adhered that to the front. Now with these two great buttons from Pinque Peacock, I put magnets on the back. (Wal-Mart) package of 10, are less than $2.00. Now I could assign a button to family members and any of those little appointment cards that always  seem to turn up missing, could be put under their button.. or a coupon, etc. I think these are the perfect little organizer for an office or home. See where else I hung mine...

In a kitchen for coupons or recipes. And yes, if you noticed, my cabinet wear is Silverware. This one is hanging on a fork, and the cabinets all have knifes or spoons. Visitors always notice them...

On a door knob, don't forget paperwork for the office or school other important info..
Handy right?? Wouldn't these be great for all those little Christmas presents you need? Or Christmas lists... if you need my sizes or fave colors, just let me know... enjoy the rest of the hop!

Now, if you find yourself Hopping off the Path on any of the three days, you can use this Lineup to get back on the Right Track . . .
