Calling Card Organization

Hello friends. Cindy here from scrap-obsessed.blogspot.com. I can't believe we're in November already! Time is flying by. I have a pretty simple project for you today. I've been lucky enough to go to a few Cricut Circle events and have received some beautiful calling cards. I've been trying to come up with a way to store the cards so that they would be organized and visible. I think I finally found what works for me.



My husband (my biggest enabler) brought home this old computer disc holder because he thought I could use it for something. I think they were called floppy discs? Well, whatever they were called doesn't matter. The important thing to know is that it's the perfect size for our calling cards.


I used solid cardstock squares cut an inch bigger than the calling cards. I then used my label maker to add the Circlets name on the top for easy alphabetizing. The calling card is attached to the cardstock and on the back I wrote the event where we met.


To dress it up a little I added some vinyl that was cut from the Cricut Everyday cartridge.  The green Circle head was cut at 3" from page 21. The Proud Cricut Circle Member was cut at 2" and was also from page 21.  That's it. Easy peasy.


My calling cards now sit very proudly on my desk where I can look through them and remember the fun we had.  I hope you like todays project and that it gives you inspiration to find something old and make it new again.
