I am in the process of creating seven Post-It-Note holders in a Poker Theme.  I am in the “auditioning” process right now and have sent photos of it to our friend, Tim.

Tim has requested that I fan the playing cards out as though they are in a person’s hand, leaving more room on the base for the bets.  His suggestions were a wrist watch, some paper money or an IOU.

Since I have seven (7) of these to make I need ideas for what to put on these bases.  Let your imagination go.  I’ve thought of putting a “Jimmy Choo” shoe on the base.  I spent most of my night thinking how to attach an image of the shoe to a bathroom paper roll core (Sorry Jimmy Choo if you find yourself here).  I have it pretty well figured out – EXCEPT – for the stiletto heel part.

Thrill me with your creative ideas 😀  And good luck to you all.
