Library cards

I got this idea from a local craft & home decor magazine (www.ideasmag.co.za). Papertrey Ink also has a stamp set to make these. I went the electronic route however. This was just perfect to make for my friend Lianne since we are often talking about how we lend out books and can't remember where they went to!
The magazine has a downloadable template here but I made my own in MS Powerpoint since I wanted to save paper and get more cards out per page.
The holder on the left gets glued inside the book and the card fits inside. When you lend out a book, you write the date and the person's name on the card and keep it.

Here's the box (seen from the top) I made to put it in. It was also the "packaging" :D

Let's go play somewhere:
