My Favorite Things Teaser Day 3 – Aim High

Let's go fly a kite . . . Up to the highest height! Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring.
Up through the atmosphere. Up where the air is clear.
Oh, let's go fly a kite!
   ~ from the musical, Mary Poppins, 1964

MFT Pure Innocence Aim High


Hi again! (Or maybe "High Again?!) We're talking about kites, so it's okay to be high, especially when it's about this adorable, new My Favorite Things (MFT) Pure Innocence stamp set, Aim High.


My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Aim High Card


If you want to get the highest height out of your kite, try a few of these tricks:

  • Use some sticks to create your kite's spine. I used wood veneer paper and can you guess what else? A toothpick! (Ah, I'm so clev-ah!)
  • Everyone knows a kite needs a tail for balance. This adorable stamp set comes with a little tail. I thought the bow-tie like tail was so cute, I added it to the little darling's shoes.
  • No kite can stand still in the wind. (If it does, it's surely about to plummet to a slow, cruel death.) Create a little spring by wrapping some jewelry wire around a wooden dowel and then taping it to the kite. You have to look real close from the side to see it. Now your kite can jiggle! (Yes, I'm a genius.)


Hopefully, the inside of the card looks like a picture window. What do you think?
