Crafty Springtime

I finally had a whole weekend off and got to do a little playing in my craft room.  That is always so refreshing for me.  After doing a little reorganizing (seems I do as much of that as I do actual crafting), I made a couple of business card cases and some crafty business cards.

Last year, I had come across these Meijer gift card tins in the clearance aisle.  They were orignally 99 cents but were marked down to 49 cents.  When I checked out, they rang up as 10 cents!  I knew I would figure out a use for them at some point.
This weekend, my husband asked me if I had any sort of business card holder.  LIGHTBULB!!!!  Why, yes I do!!!  Give me a minute.....
Kept it simple and not to frilly.  I used vinyl to cover the lid, some vinyl letters, and some silver stickers for the corners.  Not too bad.  Except, now I want one!!  If I could go from one to the other so easily....
...surely I could whip one up for myself.  And while I'm at it, I think I'll do some handmade business cards.  (Thanks for the inspiration,  So, a short time later, my case was vamped and my business cards were created!
I made eight cards using Microsoft Word and printed them on some yellow cardstock.  Then I found a complementary paper and cut the strips for the top, glued on some purple ribbon and added a little bling (what girl doesn't love a little bling!).  I can't wait to make another batch.  I'm thinking.....PINK!  I'll be sure to post what I come up with.  These were so much fun to make!

Until next time, keeping my fingers inky and my Cricut chirpin'!
