Great Find!

I found this book display case on the local craigslist and picked it up today. It was 7 bucks, can you believe it?! It is 48" high, 36" wide and 4" deep. I am going to do some alterations to it this week and then I will show you what I end up doing with it. Smile

New Sizes

I finally got a chance to go back to the new Michael's store today and spent about an hour walking around. I have a little extra spending money and a 50% off coupon and I could find nothing that I really just had to have. It always happens like that. If I was broke with no coupon I would have found plenty I things I wanted.
Anyhow, I went down one last aisle and made an interesting find. Clear envelopes in about 8 different sizes ranging from 2x2 to 12x12. I love to put my cards in the clear envies that Stampin up sells and I have been wanting to try different size cards, but didn't know what kind of envie to put them in. So I chose a 3 5/16"X5 1/8" envie and a 5 7/8"X4 1/2" envie. Here are the cards I made tonight to fit those sizes.

All the envelopes are 2.99 a pack no matter what size you get. The difference is in the number of envelopes in each pack. The smaller envies I got had 50 to a pack and the larger size had 35 in a pack. I have a 20% off entire purchase coupon that I think I am going to go back and use to get a few more different sizes.
