Save the Date

Just taking a side trip away from pop-up cards a bit, to make save-the-date flat cards for my daughter's wedding. She wanted colorful, autumn leaf motif. I, of course, can't bring myself to make just one style of card (since she'll need 60). So it looks like a mixed bag of designs, including a few more not pictured here.

It was good to meet all the fellow DC area crafters this past weekend at the first ever Falling for Handmade Craft Fair.

Card Display - Cheap and Easy

Yes, it's the last minute before a craft show and I needed a way to display cards. My requirements: to be able to see over the tabletop display (24" high), reach around the display (18" wide), and be as light as possible (thin particle board). These were made from stuff I had around the house, with the exception of the flashing (under $3 for 10 feet and glued on with E-6000). Even the hinges are upcycled and put on with craft brads, so that I can take them off later. I may add a safety chain towards the bottom of the 'V' but so far the boards are not sliding around at all on the tablecloth.
