laura's birthday gift - revealed!

continuing with my handmade pledge, i created these "happy birthday laura" pennant banners for my old friend.

i used a different pattern for every pennant and then cut out each letter by hand using an exacto knife.

now it gets interesting.  after i had cut out all the letters it occurred to me to take it a step further.  instead of tossing the letters, i organized and scanned them to create this card to accompany the banners.  a handmade gift AND a handmade card.  the total package.

Final Wish Flyer

i designed this flyer for my friend, Lauren Chojnacki, who's mother was recently diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. if you are in the LA area i encourage you to participate in this event (details above).
