Stashbusting Project 4: Christmas Card Holder (I know.. wrong time of the year but I have been wanting to make one for so long, come Christmas time I never get around to it.)
Inside my stashbusting box I found a belt!
So to start off I cut the belt using the Westcott Scissors to a length I thought was ideal for my card holder.
I then decided to adhere some ribbon (from my stash) down the center of the belt and at the top I tied the ribbon to the buckles.
Next, I used a Cheerio box and my Cricut machine to cut out the Noel Sign. First I used the cheerio box for the back of my sign, I cut it out and then repeated the cut with the red pattern paper. I adhered the red paper onto the cheerio box cut.
Next, I used my Cricut and cut out the Noel in green pattern paper and adhered it to the red paper.(The Noel cut is from the Christmas Cartridge on the Gypsy)
Next, I used the Westcott brand x-acto knife that was included in the stashbusting box to cut out a rectangle piece from cheerio box cardboard. I adhered the green pattern paper to the cardboard and trimmed off the excess around the edges.
I adhered the two cardboard signs to the canvas belt. Then Noel sign on the front of the belt and the green rectangle to the back side of the belt. I decided to tie a bow to make the rectangle look kinda like a Christmas present.
Next, I used some clothes pins I had and mod podged the red pattern paper scraps onto them. I covered the top with Mod Podge as well. Trimmed off excess paper around the edges.
Once dry, I glued the clothes pins onto the back side of the green rectangle using Mod Podge and then when that was dry I finally added my Christmas cards!!
