Disneyland Confetti Surprise Card

For a friend's birthday, a couple of us decided to surprise her with a trip to Disneyland. I (naturally!) volunteered to make the card and remembered seeing a neat card from Papyrus (which unfortunately doesn't seem to be on their website) where you had to shake it to reveal the message. Since we didn't have the tickets on hand, I thought that would be a fun way to reveal her birthday surprise!

Using Up Old Nail Polish

I really like to save bottles of old nail polish for small projects. I usually use them as paints (mostly when decorating cards) since I don't paint often enough to buy products for that specific purpose. However, I have also tried using them to spice up some of my fashion jewelry as both a coating to prevent tarnish (using clear nail polish) and to jazz up a piece (with color polish).
