Toy Inspired.


I came across this photo on the Internet. Genius. She used a Slinky to display her business cards and what an impact! See the post for yourself if you'd like at A La Mode Stuff.
Sometimes I have trouble with sleep. I wouldn't say it's insomnia because I'm ok falling asleep, I just often wake through the night at have a difficult time getting back to sleep. I've learned not to fight it (only makes things worse!) and let my mind wander. So thinking about the Slinky cardholder at 3 a.m. lead me to think about other childhood toys and this card idea formed. My next sleepless night I'll see if I can come up with an envelope for it :)


Tricky to make and even trickier to get a good pic!

Holy cow, this is the coolest card ever! So creative!! I loved Rubik's cubes when I was growing up, although I never did manage to solve one--LOL!. Love the inside of your box/card, too.
