I'm a Hula Girl at Heart

"In world that needs more dancing, she's a hula girl at heart..."  Jimmy Buffett (of course!)

This card was SO FUN to make for's blog!  I am also entering this card into the Paper Craft Connection's gallery for shaped cards, and MoxieFab World's Hello card challenge. :)

I made the lei by using my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge by CTMH to cut 1/2" flowers.  Then, using a needle and clear thread, I threaded each one (about sixty!) onto the string.  I punched a hole at the top of the card with my needle, and threaded one end into each hole.  I tied the strings in a knot inside the fold of the card, and since it's clear, you can't tell! :)

For complete how-to instructions, please visit my blog post at's blog!

Happy Hula-ing!
