April Fool’s! 1


This is a quick project that you can place into a lunch bag or briefcase; a gift of a silly moment on April Fool’s day!

Tombow vellum adhesive, Dual Brush Pens and Imaginisce paper and embellishments were used along with some paper punches and vellum.

The card is to be hanged on your nose to view the scripted message on the other side – and to look silly while doing it! It will be fun to do, but also to share with others!

I liked the paper from the Imaginisce ‘Scooter’s Vacation’ and also added stickers, a stamped image and flowers from the same collection so everything matched.  The Tombow Dual Brush Pens that match the Imaginisce Scooter’s Vacation Line:

837 Wine Red. 969 Chocolate. 373 Sea Blue. 991 Light Ochre. 126 Light Olive

Everything was put together with Mono Adhesive Vellum.

I use an upside down vase punch for the nose opening, but cutting a triangle from the paper would also work well. On the front of the card place the following message:

To view your message, go to a mirror and hang this on your nose…

For the flip side, write this message on a piece of vellum:

Wishing you a goofy, funny and silly day! Love from Lirpa Sloof

Turn the vellum over and copy the letters. Adhere this side up on the card.

I decorated the card to make it look as goofy as I could – you could really go to town with this idea, big ears maybe? Silly hair?…have fun!

Have you figured out who Lirpa Sloof is yet? April Fools spelled backwards!

What about you? Do you play any April Fool’s day pranks at your house?
