Checkbook Cover

Tomorrow is another early day. It's foot march day, so that means I'll be at work before 0400. At least the weather has cooled off a bit. It has been absolutely miserable these past few weeks. I can't wait until the crisp fall air starts to blow in. The corn field out my window has finally turned into a golden husk, so it's about ready for plowing. I'm a farm girl from Texas if I haven't mentioned it before. The country is where I feel most at home. I really want to start making some Thanksgiving and Halloween cards soon. I don't have any Halloween stamp sets though, so I might have to pick some up soon. Today's little project is a checkbook cover. It was inspired by these fun brads I acquired over a year ago for sure. I hope you like it.
Here's what I did:
I started by cutting the K&Co background paper to fit in my checkbook cover(6.25"x6.75"). Next, I adhered the 1" striped piece and American Crafts ribbon after first running them through my Xyron. I pushed the K&Co brads through the Prima flowers first before attaching them with thick glue dots. And...that's it!
