I found this awesome paper with all of the wonderful encouraging sayings. Then I have been experimenting with a few of my edge punches, and feeding either ribbon through or narrow pieces of paper through to give it a totally different feel.
One idea that came to my brain one day (scary) was when I trimed off a piece of paper with my Fiskars rotary cutter, just a long narrow piece (1/8"). I rolled this piece around the narrow part of a pen, and viola! It made this cute curly piece, used up a piece of scrap and it matches the paper.
Plus I used several pieces of paper where you can see I ran it in and out through where I used the edging tool, and I also used black ribbon to do the same thing on this card. I am a total undeniable Hoarder when it comes to scraps.
