Post Stampin Up! convention trades class, part 1 #2

Hi all
Today I have a project for you that, at first glance, does not seem too special.  What is special about this project is that it is a  "green" makes use of those little pieces of left over DSP that you hate to throw out but seem too small to do much with them.  I punched the postage stamp punch on assorted DSPs and then aligned them closely to one another.  The "thanks, thanks, thanks" stamp fits nicely as a layer onto the postage stamp blocks as a greeting.  Take a look....

The top card is the trade I received at convention from Linda Payne..the bottom one is the one I made.
No surprise the the quilter at my class chose this project as one of her favorites.  Imagine if each time you pondered over a small piece of DSP, you punched out a postage square and set it aside.  Then when you have a stack of them, you could sit down and assemble new cards for each 12 punched pieces you had.  How easy is that?  This would be a great strategy for a person who prefers to make scrapbook pages as they probably often have small pieces of DSP left over.  Easy peasy, huh?
Come back tomorrow to see another great project!
