Hardware, Rust, and Rhinestones

This well used heavy iron cement edger and piece of door hardware were just what I needed.
I used E6000 glue to attach the hardware piece to the edger.  It was the perfect size for business cards!
While I was at it, I decided to make some more card holders using two antique door hinges and two small hinges.  I glued down one side of the small hinge and left the other side free to move back and forth.  Of course everything looks better with a rhinestone.
They make perfect picture holders too!

While sorting through one of my boxes of hardware, wood pieces, lamp parts, and miscellaneous rusty treasures, I found the perfect pieces to hold my business cards.
