Welcome to the Designer’s Craft Connections Blog Hop.

This month we are working with back-to-school items.

I am always part of the Designer’s Showcase at CHA and I needed something to display my business cards and postcards for those who visited my tables.  Letter holders were a possibility, but they just didn’t fit the style of the work on my table. 

Using a bit of glue, pages from old text books that I had stored away and a bit of embellishment, I had something that wouldn’t stand out like a contemporary fixture. 

Because I would like to use this over and over, I wanted to use a glue that wouldn’t yellow over time.  ILoveToCreate.com® sent me their Aleene's ® No-Sew Fabric Glue ™.  “After all,”  I thought, “if it will work on batiked paper for my dress and not yellow after time, it will work on this little project.”  I was right.

The buttons, crystals and other embellishments were from previous projects, which gave me a way to use up some of the supplies that seem to hang around the studio.
