Make it Monday-Papertrey Ink #267
This week’s Make it Monday Challenge fit right in with what I was working on. The challenge was to create several items at a time. I don’t normally make production line cards. The fun for me is mostly in the designing process and each attempt gives me more ideas for different cards so I rarely make the same one twice. I realized the folly of my method when I thought about wanting to create all my Christmas cards, gift tags and gift cards for the holidays. One at a time was going to be painfully slow.
Here was my starting place. Even when trying to make everything the same, I had to throw in both white and brown woodgrain frames, mats, envelopes and mailbox posts for variety.
Because I like to keep my options open, I only converted one of the mailboxes to a full sized card. The rest may be used as gift tags, just by cutting off part of the mailbox post and adding some twine.
Now I am thinking about mass producing the freestanding little mailbox as a combination napkin holder and place card for the Christmas dinner table. That is, if I think I can handle the Martha Stewart jokes that will be flung at me if I do! LOL!.
The inspiration in this kit is mind boggling. Included is a twenty page idea download with ideas to keep one busy for a long time, including some non Christmas ideas that are amazing. Kudos to Betsy and the entire Papertrey Ink creative team. Your creativity and attention to detail is simply astonishing!
