This year I was a little better about putting together projects were I would use up more of the scraps, or better yet, not have as many to add to the pile.
These emery board holders make great little stocking stuffers and sold really well at the craft fairs. And, I was able to use up a bunch of scraps on the embellishments and even the holders as well. I saw the idea on this blog a while back, but this is the first time I have made any. Very simple and easy to do.
The paper for the holder measures 3" by 5", On the 5" side score at 1/4"; on the 3" side score at 1" and 3". Fold and seal. I used a 3/4" circle punch to make the half circle cut-out at the top.
The next item is a money/check holder. The inspiration came from this.
I used SU's slit punch (retired) on the bottom of the slider. Coupled with the circle at the top, the money or check will stay securely in place. I added a piece of card stock on the back of the slider piece so that a message could be added for the recipient.
When I wrote this post and added the link to the inspiration pic for the money holder, I was not able to access the blog anymore that she mentioned had the directions. I will post a tutorial later this week.
Hope you all have a great day!
