Mini Magazine Holders...

First... hope you all had a very blessed Valentines. Today was a very beautiful day in Hawaii. A very, very windy day in Hawaii. But needless to say, it was wonderful. It was all about "Family". Yep...me, my DH, and our three little sweethearts. The day flew by so quickly but I was able to get some crafting done, which I would like to share with you.
I seen these cute Mini Magazine Holders all over blog land and thought I'd give it a try. Most of them I saw were created to hold 3x3 note cards. I didn't have any envelopes for 3x3's so I decided to create mine to hold our standard 41/2 x 51/2 cards. Although I had to adjust my measurements to accommodate my card size, it was easy.
I made these for two of our stamping sisters, as my gratitude to them. Hope they will enjoy it. Each set includes (4) cards with envelopes. Both sets were stamped, using the same sentiments. Four different sentiments in all.
Although it was time consuming, it was a fairly easy project to work on. I enjoyed it and am very pleased with the outcome.
Details:
Stamps: SU!
Paper: DCWV premium stacks, SU! stock
Ink: Blk VersaCraft
Accessories: CB embossing folder, ribbon, prima flower, gem Stones, scallop punch, & circle punch

I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Thank you so much. Aloha and Jesus loves!!!

hugs in Jesus~

Great Blog! Check out this new Christian band that just released their first album. From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.

Introducing the new Christian National Anthem: Guns & Jesus.

Please pass on this info to all.

This looks great. I recently tried to make one for standard cards, but math isn't my friend! Seeing yours shows me it's totally doable so I'm going to attempt it again.

Beautifully inspiring!
