The image of Earth on the base of this clever card holder will serve as a reminder of the “big” picture, while it attractively holds whatever card, note, or recipe you choose. Cards stay where you put them without leaning sideways. The weighted bottom prevents tipping; strong clips hold securely and help develop the pincer movement. Yes, the “alligator” clip does have teeth which may leave slight impressions in your cards—recommended for use with laminated materials. 4¼" high; base is 1" across.
