For my outlets, I cut two circles and then sliced off the top and bottom of each one.
I used a ribbon slot punch tool that I've had for years to make the oval(ish) openings in my outlet. If I would have thought more about it ahead of time, I would have made one slot longer than the other so that it looks more like a modern outlet. Oh well...there's always a next time. A 1/8" hole punch made the little round openings.
I put some light gray cardstock behind the openings to make them a little more pronounced.
Last year at the Scrapbook Expo I bought some little screw-head brads and used one of them on this card.
This card really doesn't look like much in the photos, but I actually really like it IRL. I think my brother will like it, too.
I've been working on the Mother's Day baskets that I mentioned in my last post. I hope to have some photos to share with you soon. They've been super fun to put together, and I think they look pretty appealing. I sure hope they sell! My husband said that maybe he ought to go to the thrift store and buy one for ME for Mother's Day. I just gave him "the look" that silently says, "Don't you dare!" He he
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
