Paper Accordian Business Card Holder

I got a nice email from an Etsy shopper about making some business card holders for her.  
Here's what I came up with, with the help of other crafters.  
Super cute and a lot of fun to make!

Thanks!  Monica

Owl Punch Art Bookmark Or Treat Topper Tutorial

I'm not sure what all the hype is with the owls lately but I was again wasting my time on Pinterest and came across these cute bookmarks.  I have my monthly stamp club swap coming up and our challenge this month was to create something other than a card.  So I thought I would make these and show you how easy they are too. 

But if you don't feel like making any you can purchase them in my Etsy store too!

We only had to make one thing per person in my stamp club and that totaled 7 of us. But since these can be used as treat toppers or bookmarks I made six for everyone. 

Let me break down the amount of things I had to punch out just because it's ALOT!  Oh and here's where the how-to comes in.  I used a Sizzix Top Note Die for the base and I needed 42 of them.  Thank goodness for my Big Shot on that part!  You can also just cut a piece of cardstock at 4 1/2 x 3 1/2.  

Then you need circles (2 of each) cut at 1/4 inch, 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches.  For me that amounted to 252 HAND PUNCHED CIRCLES!  Ok, got a little excited but if I didn't have carpal tunnel before, I have it now.  I also used a five petal flower punch and just used one petal for the beak.  See the picture below for everything you need then just assemble it together.  Easy peasy!  
Have fun!

Thanks!  Monica
