Easel Card and Holder

Wow! What a week this has been! I am so glad to take a short break for a minute...whew! Who knew a grandma could be so busy? Anyway I have been busy making little boxes, and holders in preparation for Christmas stocking stuffers, and those little gifts you give to co-workers or neighbors during the holidays.

Who doesn't like tea-lights, scratch-off tickets, chocolate and stuff like that? Well what about your co-workers. Some of them may not like tea-lights..fear of fire or something, and there are a few that really shouldn't have the chocolate or they are always on some of sort of food reduction program..so what about them.  Well what if the holders could be themed to hold things like paper clips, sticky notes, pencils and such.  With this idea in mind I decided that for my next challenge I would create an Easel Card that works as a Sticky Note Holder as well.

Then I think the next one might be a tissue box holder and now my mojo is running wild so I think I better show you guys my project before I start rambling off into La-la land somewhere.

Don't forget to click the tab above and join us for our September Fall Theme or Color Challenge.  The M&M Girls have created some lovely projects that we hope will inspire you to play with us.

I know its not Fall yet but I am so excited and ready for the cooler temperatures and the changing of the leaves I thought I would fall right on in with my September challenge.

Following the color challenge I used the orange, brown and green combination. Additionally I used the Envelope Punch Board to create a matching envelope for this card. It measured 5.5 x 5.5 x .75. Funny I've included this handy tool in our grab bag giveaway.  Every card maker should have this tool or one similar. Absolutely fabulous!
