Paper Crafting Impact!

I love the impact I get with my KNK !  I create and control the size and the shapes of my die cuts.  Consider this simple project I threw together with a specific budget in mind.  Klic-N-Kut to the rescue!  This is a 6 x 9 book, built to house my holiday cards.  I simply selected a font, welded the numbers and contoured the object for extra impact.  Next, I created a few simple poinsettia flowers in cascading sizes to fill some of the empty space.  What an inexpensive keepsake I created to revisit my holiday memories year after year!

  1. Wonderful idea! Not only is it pretty, but it is so useful (Our friends are very mobile and it is tough keeping up with the latest addresses! THanks for a gorgeous idea.

  2. Great idea for any occasion…weddings, baby showers, anniversaries….Ooooo the wheels are turning! A great inspiration project Susan!!

  3. Very nice and what a great idea! All my cards are in a bag right now. This will definitely be something I can use. What’s inside to hold the cards?

  4. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments! @Barbie – the green satin ribbons (embellished with bells) wrap all the way around the book, so you just open the cards and slip them in! 😀

  5. What a great idea. Do you just glue the photo cards inside? Are the inside pages decorated too? I’m so embarrassed to say I stick all my Christmas cards in a bag and stick them with the Christmas stuff, then look at them every year when we are putting up the Christmas crud.

  6. You always inspire me with your posts. I love the colors used in this project and how all the pieces in this project complement each other.

  7. Great Idea! Such a lovely way to remember and keep those Christmas cards that we never know what to do with, but don’t want to throw out.
