Small Folder from Artiste

Hi folks,

Ian, here, from A Newbie Crafter.  Today I have a small project for you using the Artiste cartridge.  I have been fascinated by the 3D items on this cartridge and decided to try my hand in one of them.  I was excited to try the magazine folder/holder.  Not knowing how big it was, I gave it a go.  I used the Dotty For You paper pack from last April/May.  Here's my project:

On the back of the folder I used the small stamp from Close To My Heart called Card Chatter - Focus on the Little Things.  I thought this was perfect because the holder is so small.  I made a rookie mistake by stamping it after I put it all together.  I should have stamped it beforehand.  To add a little bit a flair I used some ribbon and created a bow and used a pop dot to adhere it to the folder.  I should have used the same paper for the top and bottom so it didn't look so mismatched like what is shown above.  You live, you learn.  Other than that, I think I am going to put small tools in it (scissors, colored pencils, etc.) so I can easily reach them without having to open a package.

I hope you like it!

Craft on,
