SNSDC78 ~ Anything but a Card

Welcome back Friends & Followers!  I hope your Halloween was a happy one and a safe one as well.  It's Friday so it is time for another Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge.  This week's theme is Anything but a Card.  After seeing those supersized bags of Pixie Stix on sale I decided to make Pixie Stix holders using the ucte little Pumpkin Kitty digital stamp and some fun patterned paper from last year's DCWV Harvest Festival mat stack:

(please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  Each is made from a 4.5" x 5" piece of cardstock scored at 1.25", 1.5", 3.5" and 3.75" along the 5" side.  Then you rotate the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 1/4".  You snip the 1/4" scores up to where they intersect the other score lines (this will be the bottom of your pixie stix holder), fold together and secure with super tacky tape or your adhesive of choice.  I actually use scotch tape - it is on the back and the bottom, no one sees it anyway, and it is cheaper than using up my Monomulti.  I printed out several of the kitties onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock and punched them out - VOILA!  I made about 12 of these so far, they are so much fun to make and easy too!  For future reference - these work great as pencil holders too for back to school!  ;)
     With Thanksgiving around the corner and the holidays soon after that I am sure you can think of lots of projects you could make for our challenge - napkin rings for the Thanksgiving table, treat holders of all kinds, be sure to see the SNSDC BLog for more ideas from my Digi Challenge teammates, the sky's the limit!  So won't you play along with us?  You don't even need to use a SNSS digi, any digi will do, but we spotlight one person who uses SNSS digis on their card or project every week, and it could be YOU!  And every card you enter throughout November, you will get one entry to be eligible for winning 3 digis of your choice from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store - so play along every week to increase your chances to win!  
     On a side note, November is a special month for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - SNSS is celebrating their 5th birthday and lots of special things are planned all month long!  Be sure to visit the Sweet 'n Sassy store for a list of all scheduled events.  There are daily giveaways on the SNSS Facebook page and in the SCS Member Company Forum as well, so stop by often so you don't miss a thing!  Happy 5th birthday SNSS!  Happy November Friends!
