All Tied Up
Every time I receive a Victorian Trading Company catalog in the mail, I enjoy dreaming over all of the delightful objects it contains -- although I really haven't ordered much from it, and don't know that I ever shall! But I have often longed for the decorative and practical function of their Greeting Card Keeper.
So, on a whim, I decided to make one of my own. I covered cardboard with some scrap fabric from the stash, making little "pockets" for each piece.
It's the perfect size to hold the greeting cards I've accumulated over the years:
And a bit of cord around the edges helps to conceal the hot glue that I used to connect each section.
All tied up with a ribbon, and ready to relieve my writing desk from a card overflow!
