Odd Inspiration

Okay, so I was looking through my pantry the other day and saw a couple things that caught my eye.  I'm always on the lookout for cool design ideas, but I never thought to open my pantry doors for inspiration!  I first saw a cake mix and thought that it would make a cute card.  Here's the cake mix box:

Notice the red spoon on the top of the box....I thought that would be a great place for a ribbon.  Also notice the "White" word on a small strip of blue....I thought that would be a good place for a small sentiment.  Now, here is the card I made.  I replaced the yummy cake for a pretty flower cut from my Cricut.  I know it's not an exact match, but can you see the similarities?  I hope so!

Next up, I saw the label on my bread flour bag.  Here's a snapshot of it:

I liked the big medallion-looking part at the top of the bag and decided to transfer the idea to a card.  In the following card, I used embossed paper, aqua ribbon and another flower style cut from my Cricut for the centerpiece.

Be sure to always keep your eyes open for ideas - you never know where your next inspiration may come from.  :0)  I hope you enjoyed this post!  Please leave a comment if you'd like - I love to read them!  :0)
