Thank you Stampin' Up! for Fabric, Cardstock, Designers Paper and Digital Images that ALL match, yaaaayyyy! They helped me make some fun gifts for Jenny's Birthday! I hope she likes them :)
We'll be focusing on the Calendar in this post but I have to mention the Bakers Twine Holder (L) and the Credit Card Holder/ Picture Album (B). The Credit card holder was inspired by this post, sent to me by my friend Kasey. It's yummy in person and so much cheaper then a Vera Bradley! And my sweet friend Kay brought a twine holder that she made for show 'n tell, it was SOOOO cute I had to make one, too!
Let me show you the Calendar/ Pen Holder up close
Give me a big Woo Hoo, because it's pretty and functional. Mom sent me this idea from a local office supply store and I thought "Oh my, I could make this in MDS and it would be pretty." There's was just basic but I loved the idea and we've been eating soup. hehehe
Here's how I used MDS to get'r done
(did you know you can find "get'r done" in the Urban dictionary - oh how I love the south)
These are the 2 pages I created in MDS and printed at home. The numbers were printed on regular paper and the main image on vanilla card stock.
Each page design needs to measure 4 3/4 x 10 to wrap around the can and then cut them into 4 pieces.
cut out the hole for the number
place sticky strip along one side
wrap the numbers first - NOT TO TIGHT
Then wrap the pretty pieces, starting at the bottom, using the lip on the can as your guide.
"Souper" easy! LOL
I will be making several of these for teachers but it'd make a great gift for an friend at work, too! Just toss in some coffee beans and a few pens. We'll make this at our MDS class in November!
I've been so inspired to create recently and I hope this inspired you!
