I am still in awe of all the fabulous creations designed by our contributors for Showcase #5! Weren't all the projects amazing?!!! I hope you visited or plan to visit the others, Helen and Sheila, because their projects were just awesome too!
Now, I have a little project to share with you. This is an accordion file to hold coupons, receipts, cancelled checks (do people still get those?- LOL!), etc. There is a detachable calendar attached, so if you need to pop this file in your purse, you can just remove the calendar because it's attached with magnets (one on the back of the calendar and one on the inside of the file box); now you're calendar won't get dirty or torn when you carry it! Bring it home and pop the calendar back on!!! To complete the gift set I've made a matching "Thank You" card:
This next picture shows a view of the file opened and the calendar detached; and the inset picture on the bottom is the magnet on the back of the calendar:
I added Black Diamond color stickles to the inside rows of triangles on the paper, but it's really difficult to see the black on black; however, the subtle bling in person looks fantastic and adds just the right amount of glitz!!! I also lightly brushed on some of the stickles to take away some of the starkness of the white paper. You might be able to see it better if you click on it for a closer view.
Well, what do you think? Please leave me your comments letting me know!!!
Okay, now don't forget to get your projects ready for Showcase #6. The fairies and I are just loving all that you're doing!!!
So, that's it for right now; however, once I get back from therapy, I'll be visiting and blog-hopping -- yeaaa!!! Which means, of course...
I'll be seeing you!
