My newest addition to the line is the "Portable Yule Log." It comes flat in the envelope and slides easily into a 3 dimensional yule log. There is a place to write a personal message on the back along side the greeting "Warmest Wishes". It's quite funny if I do say so myself.
Update: Unfortunately this card is now sold out. But please check out the right hand column of this blog to see many other items I've illustrated and designed that are available to purchase online. And you can always find my newest creations for the MoMA by clicking here or my visiting the www.MoMAstore.org and searching for "Mary Beth Cryan." Thank you!

It comes in a beautiful gift box with 12 winter themed paper projects for you to pop out and assemble (no cutting required). It also contains a book with photos of the projects, instructions, instructional illustrations, some information about me, a paper craft resource section, and additional templates that you can photocopy (so you can make the projects over and over after you use up the pop out pieces that are included in the kit). It also comes with a pre-assembled 3D squirrel ornament. And would you believe the whole kit is only $14.95?
Here are some photos:

The assignment was to design creative, novelty gift cards with play value. Since novelty and creative are my middle names it was the perfect project for me. The first card is a die-cut crown. The second is a jeweled ring that can be worn by the recipient. And the third features a removable cat that can be used as a bookmark.
Here they are featured on their riders.
