Patty, I just read about your scrapodex project by way of Brian Kasstle's blog, I love it! What a great way to use up smaller pieces of paper and artwork. I can't wait to get started.

Your remark about card orientation is a good one: all of my fifty cards are horizontally planned, with the cutouts as the bottom on both sides. But that means someone looking at them must turn the holder back and forth, back and forth. Your vertical scheme is lovely, as it makes the holder a stationary "book" whose pages turn. An alternate horizontal scheme would use the cutout edge as the top on the back, so the holder would be stationary end-to-end as cards flip. (This would be great for a revolving holder). Mine will--of necessity--be a mix. Maybe this overcomplicates what is intended as a fun project, but it does deserve a moment's thought if one is just starting out.


thank you much for these inspiring posts, you always challenge & encourage me. i found a petite rolodex @ office depot for $6 and am going to get started on that today! thanks again .... :)

After looking at this set of Rolodex cards, it reminded me of an image that I've been saving. I'm not really saving it because I like it. Just figured it might come in handy one day. Well, today's the day! Bet it will look great! Haven't sewn any papers together yet, but I'll get to it!
