One of my favorite activities at convention is swapping cards with other consultants. It's a wonderful way to get some really good ideas for projects in the future, as well as a fun way to meet other convention goers without feeling too awkward.
I usually try to make something that is a little different than a standard card. For me it's as much (if not more) about the idea I give someone than what I get in exchange. This was my swap for the Dallas Convention. It was inspired by Mrs. Magoo & Lou,
a couple of really fun ladies I took some classes from when I was waylaid in Seattle for so long. Check them out on Facebook and "Like" their page.

A friend and I brain stormed some different uses for this item. One that I really liked was to use it as the gift tag on a gift basket. Using a 9x9 paper to start with, it holds a gift card very nicely, but of course the measurements for all the folds have to be adjusted, too. Would a Christmas version of these be adorable hanging all over a Christmas tree?
What would you use it for?
