Business Card Holder

I love to recycle and reuse things. Do you? We’ll then here is a great way to recycle old cassette tape cases.
Materials needed:
Old cassette case
Designer series paper
Sticky strip
Card stock
Brad
Flower punchy
Snail adhesive
Hole piercer
Glue
Trimmer
Bone folder

Take the cassette out of the case and wipe off the case.
Flip inside out
Measure the back and cut card stock to fit, snail it in place.
Measure front tray part and cut DSP to match
I put a piece of card stock glued to the bottom to make it smoother but you don’t have to.
Punch out 3 flowers out of DSP, put a hole in the middle and put brad through. Use the bone folder to curl the flower petals.
Glue dot or sticky strip it onto the front.
You can’t also add a butterfly to the top, a ribbon around the front and a boarder as shown if you want.
And then add your business cards.
Enjoy Brenda

Love what I do

I love to be in my craft room, even if it is just working on business things or what I love to do creating cards and projects. I have my room set up so that my work station is facing two double window, and oh boy it is so relaxing to watch the weather change, clouds move, the sunset and nature. I hope that everyone has an awesome place to craft and creat like I do. 🙂

Q &A

The other day one of my customers who loves stamping emailed me and said that she was having a problem with her clear mount stamps. She said ” My clear mount stamps are not sticking to my clear blocks, what should I do”?
I told her that she could do one of three things:
1. Use your snail and put a little bit on the back of your stamp.
2. Get Stampin’ Ups two way glue pen and apply it all over the back of the stamp and let dry. Then it will stick.
3. Or three buy some Aleenes tack it over and over again from your local craft store. Mix equal parts glue and water, and add a thin
coat to the back of your stamps. Let dry and you are good to go.
