Operation Write Home card project

I recently joined the group Operation Write Home on Facebook. It is so inspiring to see what amazing cards others make to send to our troops (to send back home to their loved ones).  Below are a few pictures of my very first All Occasion batch of cards. The paper on the front is folded over about an inch at the top, there is a matching message inside and I embellished with puffy paper flowers. I will send these to a volunteer shipper in Kansas where they get counted, inspected, sorted and then they are sent on to Afghanistan.  I hope to get started on a Christmas batch at the next Michael's crop night .. the shipping deadline is October 30.

Here are instructions for the puffy paper flowers (go down to the middle of the post).
Thanks for dropping by!
