19Nov "Today I am Thankful For"

...inspiration from friends...
A few weeks ago I was lamenting to my friend KB I didn't know what to teach at our stamp club. She told me about the pumpkin idea she posted on her blog and we thought that it could be a good project to show. I also made one into a Christmas ornament by stringing ribbon through the middle of one made with red cardstock. At stamp club tonight, we came up with the idea of making a snowman out of 3 scallop 'balls' by using a 1" scallop for the head, then a 2" & 3" scallop for the body.

...and inspiration from shopping...
I needed another project to teach for stamp club because the scalloped pumpkin/ornament would be pretty quick. When I saw a similar sample of this Stationery Card Holder-Folder at my local crafting store, I knew I could figure out the dimensions on my own. Inside, it holds 4 handmade cards and envelopes that match the outside theme. It ties closed with ribbon. I think this would be a cute hostess gift or teacher gift or something fun to sell at a craft bazaar. I made this one with a winter/holiday theme since it's that time of the year, but it would be cute with Thank You cards or Birthday cards or general No Theme cards.
