Easy Postcards w/ Everyday Eclectic (Echo Park)

Hi Everyone

The blog-hop and giveaway previously listed here has now closed. Winner can be seen here and you can see a list of hop participants at the end of this post. Take a look at these postcards I created using the EveryDay Eclectic Collection from Echo Park.

Simple Postcards Gift Set
   

Why not break out a few scraps of paper (these work really well with the Echo Park 6x6 Paper Pads) and create a fun little postcard set as a gift. The great thing about these is that you can mail them as actual postcards too!


I started with a blank postcard (mine were from Canvas Corp),covered them in paper, added some washi a couple of stickers and they were all ready to go! Little items like this are a GREAT way to use up little stickers and scraps of paper left over at the end of a larger project.

Sneak Peeks
I have 2 more holiday projects coming this week too and they both include tutorials. Be sure to check the Echo Park blog for the full details!
