My Stampin' Up! Classes

Simplicity at its best...

Sometimes it's the simplest of things getting the most attention. That's how it is with my customers and this nail file holder.

The holder is a 3 3/4" x 6" piece of Certainly Celery card stock, scored twice to make even 1 1/4" panels.

Stamp what you wish (here I used A Beautiful Thing in Real Red ink), then fold on the score lines and adhere one side to the other.
Punch part-way with a 1 1/4" circle punch.

If you wish, you can add a 1" x 1 1/4" piece of So Saffron designer paper (shown here) and wrap some linen thread around the holder and through three stamped and cut out Certainly Celery/Real Red flowers. That's it!

Trivia: A nail file is a tool used to gently grind down and shape the edges of nails. They are often used in manicures and pedicures after the nail has been trimmed using appropriate nail clippers. Nail files may either be emery boards, ceramic, plain metal files or metal files coated with corundum (sapphire). (Source:
