I've been trying to think of a way to use up a few of those bread tabs I keep saving. Well I decided to make a card for my little boy. It brought a big smile to his face and he loved it, so I was happy! :) This is very easy and inexpensive to make!

Total Time: Half hour

Yield: 1 card

Supplies:

  • 1 8 1/2" by 11" piece of cardstock paper
  • scraps of accent color paper
  • 5 bread tabs
  • ruler
  • pen
  • Sharpie marker
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • google eyes
  • letter stencil

Steps:

  1. Fold your large piece of card stock in half.

  3. Using your ruler, make a line on the corner so that you can cut a triangle.
  4. Make 2. Mine are 5 1/2" long at widest point, 2 1/2" tall.
  5. Glue your first triangle at the top of your card. I actually used a glue gun for this. This may be a no-no for the real scrap-bookers, but it worked fine for this. Glue the second triangle directly below.
  6. Hot glue a big google eye on your first bread tab.

  9. Here's the second.
  10. Third.
  11. So far.
  12. And the rest, hard to believe a bread tab can actually look cute, huh? :)

  14. Now I used a cheap stencil ruler from the dollar store to make the words. They look cute if you angle them different directions.
  15. I also decided to draw over every other letter with a silver Sharpie. It matched the triangles nicely.
  16. Now all you have to do is pick a special little boy to give it to. Have fun! :)
