Do you remember Garbage Pail Kid Cards? This is telling my age, but in 1985, I was 6 years old and a huge fan. My sister and I were eager to collect additional cards. For 25 cents, you received outrageous sticker cards and a stick of gum. Recently, I came across two 2014 Series 2 Garbage Pail Kids Card wrappers and had to upcycle it into a Garbage Pail Kids Card Change Purse
. This change purse is perfect for bringing nostalgic memories of the 80’s to your everyday life. Use this change purse for change, money, credit cards or bus cards. Want more details? Visit Chew On This Or That Etsy Store

My favorite cards from my childhood were Messy Tessie and Hairy Carrie. Messy Tessie featured a girl with boogies dripping down her nose. It’s similar to that embarrassing sneeze that came out more than expected. Hairy Carrie, feature a hairy cave woman dragging a man by the hair and dragging him back to her cave. Oh the control and dominance. She’s taking control and grabbing what she wants.

Valentine order for a little pirate mate. I made this set with my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutter and used graphics from Lettering Delight Pirate Set.
18 individually packaged sets that included pirate kiss cut stickers, pirate sentiments and a blank card for the recipient to make.
Kiss cut stickers are stickers that are easy for the child to remove from the paper.
I made 4 different types of Pirate Sticker and Card sets with each one differing slightly from the next. Each set included at least 10 stickers and 2 sentiments. Sentiments included;
“Be My Matey”
“I Love Pirates”
