All of the stuff I'm showing you today was made using supplies I bought for office use, at a conventional office supply store (like Staples), not a craft store. Check this out!
First of all, have you ladies seen this product called "Wonder File?" It's essentially a portable vinyl mat that has plenty of pockets and sleeves. It opens to create a tabletop space that the ad shows is for "office use". But what about for crafters!? Imagine it used as a mat on your craft table, or at a crop, like this:
|Plenty of pockets for paper, glue pens, markers, |
ribbons, scissors and more ...
|There's even a zipper pouch for your Gypsy!|
Binder clips can be decorated and used as card easels to show off your latest project ... or give them as a gift with a recipe card in the clip, for use in the kitchen.
And imagine the fun envelopes you can make using CD envelopes!? The one at left is the "standard" with the cello-hole in the front which I thinks shows off your round-focused card or project. The other plastic colored solid also makes for an interesting envelope.
Clear packing tape can be used instead of pricier transfer tape in moving vinyl. And check out the drapery rings with the little clips to hold your stuff.
Here's a piece-de-resistance, I think -- storing your rubber stamps in crystal CD/DVR cases.
And wait until you see what I can make using overhead projector vinyl!
