AiFactory Tuesday - Last Minute Gifts

I think my brain is still on overload. This week, we've been challenged to make something that could be created quickly and that could also be given to just about anyone. Since I've had multiple challenges on the brain (see yesterday's post), narrowing down "something" was harder than it should've been. Once that lightbulb went off, however, I had to stop myself from making more and more of these little goodies so I could take pictures and get them posted!!

The set we're using this week is Season's Greetings. It's a really cute set and would be great for Christmas party invitations, family Christmas letter stationery, gift tags, and a whole host of other goodies. I altered some binder clips that were leftover from work and made them into little photo or note holders.

In the first picture, I've shown them holding this year's school photos of my two younger daughters. The second pic is the clips close up.
I think they came out really cute! I think I'm going to give them to my mom when we go visit her later this week. I think she'll like them, especially if I include the pictures of the girls.

Please play along with us! You've got an extra week this time, due to the holidays, and you can win a clipart set of your choice from the AiFactory Store! Links to the rest of the team are on the left side-bar. You need not use an AiFactory image, but, as usual, we'd be thrilled if you did! Remember, if you post to SCS or PCP, this week's tag is AIF017.

Challenges this set is for:
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes & DT Call (my third entry)
Color Throwdown #73 - except I linked it too late.
Easy Craft Projects #2 - inspired by the picture frame idea
AllSorts Challenge Week 32 - Anything But a Card
Bee Crafty 20 - Circles and a digi
(not sure if this counts, since I could have used the line art and it is a digital image?)

That's all of 'em for this set. Challenges are a lot of fun. Thanks for reading! Have a great one!!
