Hanging organiser

My sister and I love trying out new ideas when we get together and this was an idea we read about in Creativity magazine.  It is a hanging file with two expanding pockets which we are using in the kitchen to hold receipts and vouchers. 

It was made using a prefolded card with 5 panels. I then decorated the two end panels as above and then folded it up and used a hole punch to make the holes in the sides.  I then used some thin ribbon to hold it together and to hang it at the top.

Finally back in action!!!

Finally managed to get life sorted to do crafty stuff again :o) Some of the stuff I've been making will be Christmas presents so better not add that yet.  Instead, below are two Christmas cards I thought I had better start making.

Nice and simple to make here. We've just had 'The Range' open a shop near us so I thought it would be rude not to visit and I got these lovely scalloped edge cards in a pack of 50 from there.  The paper is cut out using a scalloped edge hole punch and several embellishments were added from my large stash.  Hopefully I'll be adding more makes soon!
