Welcome back to day 5. For those who have been following allow and those who are just joining, I appreciate you following me this week.
Today we will be taking a step back in time to bring back an office staple before we had computers and smart phones. Raise your hand if you were around for the rolodex logs back in the day. Awesome, thanks for sharing…… Today I am helping bring them back with a new age spin.
Below I have created address index cards for my rolodex. This rolodex is used for people I card swap with. Each index card is created by inspiration I get from that individual or by using stamps and supplies that make me think of that person. Some items on the index cards are used straight from items they have sent me.
When people have custom return addresses stamped onto their envelopes I with take that off and repurpose it, like I have down in the once below. On the back sides of the index cards, I write their birthday or special notes I want to remember of that person.
To create the index card base I use a piece of heavy weight cardstock and cut it to 2.5”x4”. Then using a punch designed for index cards by Heidi Swap I punch out the wholes at the bottom. Once that is done the creating can begin. The sky is the limit here. On the ones I have created some have embossed elements and pop ups. Others have charms.
Another fun thing to do with the rolodex is to swap creations with other artist, much like the ACT swap cards. I keep a separate rolodex for these fun swaps creations. So, if you are interested in doing a rolodex swap let me know. We can connect and swap cards.
Thank you again for following along with me this week. I have enjoyed sharing my creations with each of you. Be sure to return for additional creations.
I will be announcing my winners over on the Unity Facebook page so be sure to keep an eye out.
