Silly me!

I printed up some Jan-Knit business cards this weekend. Then I needed a case to protect them in my big bag. I found myself looking at some in the nearby office supply store, and being disappointed in the selection. Then it hit me (oww)...make your own, silly girl!!! So a couple of On-Demand movies later, here's my new card holder...



It's crocheted out of recycled gray wool, embroidered with some of that thrifted crewel wool I found a while back, lined with a bit of cotton scrap from a sewing project, and fastened with a leftover blue mother of pearl button. Ta-dah!! Beat that, Office Max!!

There you go being creative again. What a good idea! And that's great that you only had to use materials you already had.

so very pretty. i never use my cards, but i have a huge box of them that they printed up and gave me 6 years ago. hehehe if i had something this pretty to keep them in, i'd at least keep a handful in my purse. :)

That is beautiful! I'm a no longer poster, only lurker on c-ville and ran across your post w/ this this morning. You should make/sell them. I'd be your first customer!
