But I thought I'd share a bit of advice for any budding card makers out there.
I save all bits of birthday cards, ribbon and pretty patterned packaging - even tissue boxes - and use them to make cards. I even split them up in to different types (ever the geek).
But I do have a 'male/neutral' box.
I do have a Christmas box which is at least twice the size of the boxes above. And being a big box it make a good base to stack things on which is why I haven't taken a photo of it - it would require moving stuff.
And sometimes if I am making a card for a guy (or sometimes a gal) and I'm struggling for things to stick on the card I go out and buy wrapping paper that I like.
I know there might be some people out there reading this who might take offence to the fact that I make girly cards for girls and more manly cards for guys... sorry but they are my cards and I can put what I like on them.
Plus I seem to make a lot more cards for women than men and I have an abundance of girl orientated card bits like I said before.
Anyway all this talk of making things and 'bits' has reminded me of the theme tune of a TV show I used to watch as a kid - Bitsa!
(Don't worry you don't have to watch all of it - just the first 30 seconds will do if you just want to hear the theme tune)
