Cheap Penguin Hello Cards

While shopping at Michael's last week, I found a pack of 8 summer HELLO note cards & envelopes on clearance for 30c. Yep you read right, 30c!
I knew I just had to buy them and challenge myself to turn them into something great for OWH. 
Sooo, I found this really cute 12 x 12 Holiday Penguin paper on sale for 30c, found a 12pk of Red Gingham bows on clearance for 50c and a spool of Red ribbon only 50c! Added my black ink around the edges and some paper inside, for extra space to write.
 Turned out really cute, huh!
8 cards and envelopes (A2 size) for only $1.60! I still have extra ribbon and 4 bows left over for future cards.

I love to challenge myself, it makes this expensive hobby fun! LOL
