Sweet Loteria Dress Notecard/Gift Card Tutorial

I have a quicky for you!

How freakin cute are these????

They are insanely easy and fast to make, and I adore them! You can use them as notecards, gift tags, ornaments, etc!

Loteria Cards. (I like The Crafty Chica line)
Construction paper
Decorative edge scissors
Glue stick
embellishments. (I used ribbon and silk roses)

I just drew out a simple dress pattern. Since these are going to be notecards, I outlined my envelope on the loteria card, so that the dress I made would fit inside the envelope. (pretty smart, huh?)

Then I cut out my dress using my plain scissors. I used the first dress as a template and cut out a bunch more.

Then I applied glue to the back of the dress and glued to a plain piece of construction paper.
Using my decorative scissors, I cut around the edge of the dress leaving a little scalloped border around the dress.

I went through my stash of ribbon and tied around the dress, gluing a small flower as an accent.

Viola! these little dresses took less then 3 minutes to make!

I am going to make a hole punch on some of them, and run gold ribbon, to use as a gift tag.

I might even attach some beads to it too. Don't let me get started on the glitter opportunities either!

Enjoy and have a fabulous weekend!!!
