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!
