Each year students custom Christmas cards. I turn their artwork into cards by scanning it into my computer and using Microsoft Publisher to create the invitation sized cards. Students range in age from 7 to 14. Their work is always amazing!
Merry Christmas, everyone!

Order Form Holders
These turned out so cool! I made them to hold the order forms in the booth during quilt market. By the time I was finished I could think of lots of other uses. You could use card themed novelty prints for game tally holders, or prints to coordinate with a party, or... or... You get the idea. Thought you might like the directions.
Chuck cut me thin Masonite to use for the insides but I think you could also use foam core board or mat board.
With right sides together stitch 1/4" seam along the even edge. (The side where the fused square doesn't stick out). Turn the piece right side out and press. Top stitch 1/4" from the finished edge. Pull the fused square even with the remaining raw edges and stitch 3/4" from the raw edge. This creates the pencil holder.
Place 6" x 12 1/4" piece right side up. Position the pencil holder at the top, pinning in place, edge matching raw edges. Place 6" x 14 1/2" right side up and place just pinned section right side down over it. Turn up bottom to match raw edge of top piece. Press. Stitch around three raw edge sides with 1/4" seam.
Turn stitched unit right side out and press. Slip board (batting side down) into piece through bottom opening. Pull up into corners. Use a bit more glue and stick top fabric to board at the bottom pulling it tight.
Fill your holder, put a pencil or pen in the slot and start using it.
