Hello friends. I hope you're having an awesome day. We're halfway to the weekend now ... yeah!
I've used one of the images from the latest Simply Sassy release. Rather than making a card, I decided to make a little notepad holder. I always keep notepads sitting around to jot things down. Seems like I have to write notes to myself all the time or I never remember anything lol! And why have a boring old notepad when you can have a pretty one? I used Carnival Balloon for my notepad holder today. Isn't she adorable? I colored her with copics and colored pencils. I used some stickles on the flowers in her hair, and on the hearts on the balloon, her dress, and her shoe. I stitched my image to some BoBunny papers and then adhered it my notepad holder. I'm sure you've seen these holders all over blogland but in case you haven't, I'll share how I made mine.
My notepad is 3" x 5" and I cut my cardstock to 5 1/4" x 8 1/2". If you're going to carry your notepad in your purse, you'll want to use the heaviest cardstock you can find. Score the cardstock at 3/4", 4", 4 3/8" and 7 5/8". Fold the two outer edges to the inside and adhere. The back of my notepad is cardboard. I applied adhesive to that cardboard and adhered it inside the holder. I used Scor-pal adhesive because it's really strong. I know that Christmas is a long way off but wouldn't these make great stocking stuffers? Or great little gifts for your children's teachers? They're easy peasy so give them a try.
Thanks for stopping by.
