Did YOU Know About This?!?!

Tonight I was shopping online for a new die ... after I had found the one I wanted...and then some... I ran across a die that cut out the strangest shape...--> --> -->


I had to figure that one out!  WHAT the heck was it for?!  








Glued shut
Basically it was for stands...or "feet" for flat objects, like a flat cut out of a person or something.  When I saw that I had a "EUREKA!" moment.  These "feet" would be PERFECT for taking pictures of a card!  It is almost comical to see how some folks stand their cards up to take a picture.  Not to mention the expense they go to!  


ANYWAY!!!  I wanted to see how they work before I spent the money for the die...I came up with the following... WHO NEEDS A DIE?!   "I don't need no stinking die!" (WHEW! just dated myself there!)

What you will need:  
  • Large hole punch (mine was 1.25", but I think anything bigger than 1" will do)
  • Scrap Cardstock
  • Glue (optional) ... if you notice on the card to the right I opened them up...but you can glue them together

Spread open
STEP: 
1. Punch circle
2. Fold circle in half
3. Cut circle TO about 1/4" TOWARDS the fold
4. Glue together (or not)
5. Put card or sign in the slit
... I used two so repeat steps





Not only would they be good for picture taking, its a great way to display your cards at demos!  (If you are a SU! demonstrator)...


And, its a great, CHEAP way to display Christmas cards every year.


There are lots of cool uses...
