WILD ABOUT YOU WAGON FUN!



I got the idea for this card over at UStamp. They made a small wagon with a window sheet inside to hold 4x4 cards. I loved the idea, but I wanted a regular-size card. SO, my demonstrator friend Nancy and I got together and "adjusted" the pattern. This is what we came up with. The wagon has a clear plastic box card holder that we cut down to hold our cards. We used some retired Stampin' Up! DSP that looked like wood for the outside of our wagon and then added some Chocolate Chip grossgrain ribbon for a handle.

When I was little I used my wagon to haul around my stuffed animals, so I decided the wagon would look cute holding cards made with animals. That's how I came up with the idea of card useing the Wild About You stamp set. I used the same pattern for all the cards I put in the wagon, I just switched up sayings for them.

This was lots of fun to make and is a cute little idea to hold cards for kids. Of course, my downline thinks it would make a great flower box.... she has so many cool ideas!
