A House of Cards

Little Flyers...

Hey everyone!  Today on the October Afternoon blog, they are showcasing a new product... Little Flyers.

These particular Little Flyers are from the Sidewalks collection, but they will be coming out in all of the new collections.  They are mirror image sticker flags that can be used with things like toothpicks and string.  They are great for banners or flags, which are so popular right now.  Aren't they cute?! 

I created a 4 x 4" mini card using one of the pennant shapes.

But instead of making a banner or flag, I used the shape to create a little party hat.  I just added a button for the pompom and some patterned paper with a decorative edge for the brim of the hat.  And I popped all of the elements up with foam adhesive to add dimension.

You can check out what the rest of the design team created using Little Flyers here.

Hope you all are having a great week so far.  (Only two more days until the weekend.  ;) )
Thanks so much for stopping by!

These "Little Flyers" are just the cutest! I can't wait for them to hit the stores. I love your card--not just your creative way of turning the flag into a party hat, but also the delicate Algerian eyelet stitching and the colorful row of buttons. Beautiful!
