I am away this week but thought I would schedule a few posts for you – so you don’t miss me too much 🙂 The last couple of months I have done a few Fairs and School Fetes so I thought I would show you the projects I have made for these. Previous posts for these on my blog have been really popular (and I will add the links at the end if you have missed those). I know when I have done these I have searched around the internet looking for ideas so I am sure you might do too.
Here are some of the projects I have recently made.
Firstly, I made up some Gift Card Holders. These are very useful at Christmas time I think as many people give Gift Cards as gifts. I used the Envelope Punch Board and made it to the Gift Card size holder on the measurements. These were decorated with all kinds of stars. Some of the stars had been sitting around my desk so it was a good way to use them.
Many people give money as Gifts too so I thought it would be nice to dress up the cash instead of just sticking it in an envelope. I found this idea on a blog somewhere and I am sorry I am not sure where now though. I did adjust the measurements to make a better fit for our size notes. I have the instructions just below. Just check your own currency note size to fit.
MONEY HOLDER (in metric).
Cut card to 18cmx18cm. Score on one side at 8.5cm and 17cm.
Fold on the score lines. Punch a half circle on the front flap with the 1″ circle punch. Add Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive along the narrow tab and fold up on the score lines and adhere together. Decorate as you like.
Cut card 8cmx16cm. Punch out 2 1″ circles from co-ordinating cardstock fold in half. Staple one on each end towards the edge of the card to allow the note to slip in on either end. Remember just to check the measurements for your own currency. You can’t see but I stamped the insert front too.
Now how can you forget your furry friend. These were very popular at my fairs. I just cut the topper from the Top Note die and folded it in half. The stamps are from the the set ‘D is for Dog’.
