3D card?

I am really not sure what to call this project!  It’s a cross between a card and a 3D item.  I wanted to say that I am sorry I haven’t been posting much.  Preparing for a craft fair can be a LOT of work (what do I mean by can?  Ok… I mean it IS a lot of work).  I love it though!!  Anyway, I saw something on Pinterest and made it my own.  The reason why I say I made it my own is that I am VERY sure that the crafter that created her project didn’t use this tool to make it:


This is a sheet metal rivet gun.  It can create any size hole you want as it has a separate tool box with different hole punches and setters (for the rivets)!  Think of it like a Crop-A-Dile with a longer reach!  Where did I get this beauty?  My father-in-law gave this to me a long time ago.  He was a sheet metal mechanic.  I mentioned to him that I needed to punch holes (this must have been before Stampin’ Up! had their Crop-A-Dile) through layers of paper.  He hands me this rivet gun!  I must admit, I didn’t use it much since Stampin’ Up! came out with the Crop-A-Dile – a tool they no longer sell.  However, this particular project needs a LONGER reach.

Are you ready to see what I have been working on??  Have I chattered long enough??  *giggle* Ok ok… here it is!


I think this is a great gift for any coffee lover.  It serves two purposes.  Give them what they want – COFFEE!!  (Can you tell I am a coffee lover?) And send them some Christmas greetings!!
