Use one to decorate a gift card, three for a standard "rectangular" card and all four for a square card.

The orange shell disc in the middle of this card was one of a bag of six I bought thinking that perhaps I could make something in the jewelry line (its intended purpose) but in over two years nothing has sprung to mind. I also have lots of little ends of ribbon that never seem to be quite long enough to use. Add into the mix my rather sad rub-on collection, which I foolishly stored in a warm place with a couple of large books on top hence a sticky mainly unusable stack which I still haven't thrown out.
As you can see, I combined all of these elements, and sat them on top of a teabag motif made with pages from the book I mentioned last week, I then mounted it onto some decorative paper, then onto a card and well....the result is slightly unusual but OK. Plus of course, I can feel slightly smug about finally using some of my more obscure craft room "treasures". The teabag fold is a variation of my favourite kite shape in which one side is opened and secured under the folded side of the next shape. As this blog is supposed to show a different technique each week, I'll go with " Rub-ons on shell" as the title!
