Business Card Holder {Artiste}

One of the best parts of the CTMH convention is Extravaganza.  It is FOUR hours of creative genius from some of CTMH's most talented consultants.  Each of these consultants creates artwork with new product and then gives instruction on the products and the projects.  Today's feature was a direct result of one of their ideas!

The Artiste cartridge has one of those cute little mailboxes you could use for valentines or something, but one consultant stuck two together, bottom to bottom and came up with an adorable little 3D craft.  She suggested that you could put little Bath and Bodyworks lotions in it.

I immediately wrote down this idea!

When I came home it was one of the first things I cut with my new cartridge.  I decided to use it to hold business cards and pens at gatherings.

I chose the colors to match my business cards.  And I chose burlap because, DUH, it's burlap!!  :)

This 3D flower is also on the Artiste cartridge.  It's really cute.  I cut a circle of burlap, curled the edges to the back to make a little burlap button and then placed it in the center of the flower on a big ol' pile of Liquid Glass.  It's kind of neat how the end result looks like the burlap is somehow threaded through the flower.

I think I may make another and put some sort of treat in it for a door prize.

See you next time!
