Fabric Scrap series - Cards

What to do with small, odd sizes scrap fabric??
I match them with another odd sized scrap and sew them onto papers to make MyBotanG's thank you cards. It's nothing fancy, it's handmade which I'm a sucker for and I get to use the scrap fabric in my collection (woot!!) 
It is also a good way to relax and de-stress.. It is a way I reward myself after I've completed a quilt or some other sewing projects. I get to unwind with a bag full of scrap faby and loads of possibilities *grin* 
The best thing about making these, is that there is no need for plan or worries about things going wrong.
Just match this and that and sew, I leave the edges raw but you can glue on paper borders that would stop the edges from fraying.
Have you tried sewing on papers? It's a nice feeling.. Give it a try!!

I love these kind of cards! I guess only creative people know how to appreciate them. There are swaps on 'swap-bot' that exchange fabric postcards if you're interested.

Cik MamaDaniel - tok sah ler ber CIK CIK.. segan.. :P Glad you tried making the tape, hope to see them soon on your blog.

Okinokiyo - like Aisyah pointed out, bukan sumer org can appreciate handmade..

Anique - simple kan.. yet i would love to receive something like this rather than store bought..

Aisyah - Thanks for the info about the swap, will check it out.
