  Prize #8 - Snail Adhesive. Used in today's project -
 So today I am sharing a quick and easy gift you can still make for the holidays.  It is a Easel Card that includes a small calendar.  I ordered mine early - so it may be too late to get the calendars on time - but you could print one from online or substitute a small package of post it notes. 
 These are the gifts that I mailed out to my TEAM members and current CLUB members for the holidays as a thank you for their support.   I made 71 of them!  The background image was created by cutting apart some of the beautiful folders we as demonstrators can order from Stampin' Up!  I was able to get 6 layers from each folder.  Then depending on the design I ended up with - they were stamped with one of several different inspirational verses.
 If you don't have those folders - all you need to do is stamp a layer in any design you'd like.  Here is a simple pattern for making your own easel cards - 
All of they layers were just adhered together with snail adhesive.
 Since they fold pretty flat - I was able to send them in a regular envelope - that I had to decorate to coordinate of course.
 Hope you enjoyed this project, and will try making some easel gifts of your own.
