I have these paper towels in the kitchen. Ever since I put them out, I've been trying to figure out how I could use the cute designs in a card. The problem is that paper towels are pretty fragile. It's tough to use adhesive with them. So, I tried a few things that didn't work. Then I hit on something that did. I decopaged the cut out designs onto heavy white cardboard (I cut up a mailer box with a smooth finish). I used Diamond Glaze as the glue. The cardboard didn't ripple, and the result was a hard, matte, pebbled finish. It feels like plaster and looks a bit like those sugar things you use to decorate cakes.
The ribbon is brown velvet that I got at an antique store in Sisters. I just love how these turned out. So, if you have weird things around the house just begging to be put on cards - go for it!
