Easy Money!

Oh man are these ever going to be easy money at the upcoming craft fairs! The recipe cards are from Michael's. Yes, this year. In fact they just came in THIS week!!! The minute I picked up the package of them I knew how I wanted the cover decorated. I punched them with the RubiCoil machine and bound them with a silver plastic coil. You can punch them using a small hole punch and a piece of spiral bound school paper as your pattern/template for the holes. You can purchase the spirals and make your own too. You can also use key rings, the ones that have a hinge. You can punch holes and bind them with hemp or holiday ribbons too, you don't need a RubiCoil machine to do this project. I use it because I have it and it's very quick.



After you decorate the cover you're done. These are going to make fabulous gifts too! I'm SO thrilled with this purchase. Plus I used it right away instead of stashing it away and forgetting about it. I have LOTS of those. Or do I? If I have lots of them then I would know and they are not forgotten, right?? LOL I plan on making a lot of these little gift items!! I have LOTS of friends!! I may have to give one away on here too!!



For the cover I used the "Lovely as a Tree" set and the snowflakes from "Merry & Bright". I embossed them using VersaMark and Silver Embossing powder. I did the words on the computer and had it print them in grey. I cut the out and layered them on brushed silver card stock, taped it in place and VIOLA! it's done and ready to sell or give away! Such a fun little project that takes very little time!!





Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by,

Wanda
