Beautiful Bag, Tag, and Card Sets

These are  beautiful bag, tag and card sets I received in a swap. Imagine sending these to someone with a special gift tucked inside.  These have become a favorite to make and receive.

Handcrafted Copper Clip Board

Thought I'd share some pictures that I have taken of my crafts, that are sitting alone and neglected on my computer.  So much nicer to share them with all of you. A friend of mine attached the wires and alligator clips after stripping off the rubber.  The embossed copper  went through the cuttlebug in the herring bone folder.  I crunched up the piece above it, cut a small square with pinking shears, and attached a shiney copper penny directly on the copper painted canvas.  I wrote calligraphy on an altered paper rubbed with a copper ink pad and a gold one for highlights.  Why so much copper?  The person I made this for loves copper.  I thought this would be fun as a clip board for her important notes and to help her get a good copper fix.

If you haven't tried this, you are missing out on some great fun.  And when you send these to your friends, they won't believe their eyes.  It is amazing that we can make so many projects re-cycling our aluminum drinking vessels.  Not only do we create something fabulous, but we are going green at the same time.  The best of two worlds .  Who knew crafting could be considered community service.
