Another project made at the demo meeting Friday night. These Organizers are so neat and easy to make and can be used for so many different events and occasions. This one is a Christmas organizer.
This is the organizer front, all folded up and ties with ribbon. The stamps used to decorate the pieces are from the Holiday Tag Team set and the Type alphabet set. The DSP is Dots and Dashes. Also used on the project were brads, ribbon, designer label punch, oval punch, and white gel pen.
The inside. There are 4 pockets, plus an extra pocket on the first panel made with cardstock. The second panel holds 3 graduated size cards that pull out of the pocket. The 3rd panel pocket holds 2 pieces of cardstock to list food and gifts on. The last pocket has an envelope in the pocket for receipts or whatever you want it to hold.
The back is just decorated with DSP.

**If you are in the Montgomery area and would be interested in a class on how to make this project, drop me an email or leave a comment and I will get in touch with you.

Cute & Simple

This is a card we made at the demo meeting. The pattern paper is SU Cerise DSP, basic black for the buckle punched with 2 sizes of square punches, and a strip of real red for the belt. The base of the card is very vanilla and the greeting is stamped in real red.

Paper Ornaments

We made these at a demo meeting Friday night. This was made with SU Creepy Crawly DSP, but wouldn't they make cute Christmas ornaments using some of the holiday DSP?? You can fancy them up with beads on the ribbon, or add a tassel to the bottom.

While making this project I used the crop a dile for the first time to punch the holes for the ribbon. Oh. My. Goodness. I punched a small hole in all 11 pieces of paper at one time and it was like a hot knife through butter. I totally understand the appeal of this big clunky tool and it is on my wish list now.
