Do you have mini catties lying around … and you aren’t sure what to do with them?? I like to keep them handy … even if out of date … cos I often refer to them for card recipes & ideas for designs … so I finally got around to creating a “magazine holder” for them to sit on my desk.
Now … because I was limited with sizing … due to the size of the DSP … this is quite a narrow holder … and it doesn’t stand too well on it’s own. But … I have it sitting between a basket (with my clear blocks) and a box with my “ready to use” completed cards … and it sits quite well supported on each side. I imagine it will fit 6 – 8 catties. It looks sweet … and is doing the job I wanted — keeping my mini catties tidy! 🙂 I have drawn up a template so you can see the sizing … and to make it super easy for you to make one of your own! (Click on pics to view larger images!)
I actually cut one each of these templates from the thick packaging card from the DSP packs … and one each from the DSP and stuck them together with Tombow glue before scoring and folding. This makes the holder extra strong and able to support the catties better.
Well … I am a tad tired! 😉 But … S&J have moved into their little villa … and we have achieved a lot in the last few days. I am going back this afternoon to help finish off the unpacking … and then will pop up and see mum again later.
I am itching to stamp! This project definitely has NOT satisfied my withdrawals. But … after Monday (after we clean S&J’s old unit) … my life might quieten down a little??? Here’s hoping, anyway!!! 😉 Hugs xxaxx
