A Side Order with that....

Well I hope you all enjoyed walking "This Way" with us for the last dare! It's Rachel here with my little extra for this week.

After Mels Quick cards sometimes we need a little something to go with a card - you know just a little something, so my challenge to you all is to make a card and something to go with it - even if its just an extra special envelope.

I had a couple of ideas I wanted to share with you with some brief instructions.

A windmill - we all love them - really simple square of patterned paper with diagonal cuts then folding alternate corners over onto a stem. I rescued an ugly unloved promo one and recycled the base! The centre circle was stamped on patterned paper to hold everthing in place.
A notebook - again patterned paper and a piece of ribbon and a stamped square and handwritten title
An envelope - easy peasy with a template, if you don't have one cut open an ordinary one and use that.
A bookmark tag - just using up scraps.......
A bag-a-lope decorated with a card front.... a bag made from an A4 envelope.
Or just alter a little container for a few sweeties to lighten the day!

I don't mind what you have a go with but I thought we would venture outside our comfort zones - just a little. Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!
