Good evening Sassy peeps. I hope you've had a wonderful day so far.
For my post today I decided to make a little notepad holder, rather than a card. I always keep little notepads around to jot things down in, so why not have a pretty notepad? I used Carnival Balloon on my notepad holder and colored her with copics and colored pencils. I used some Stardust stickles on the flowers in her hair, and on the hearts on the balloon, her dress, and her shoe. I stitched my image onto some BoBunny paper and then adhered this to the front of my notepad holder.
You've probably seen the instructions for 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 5 1/4" by 8 1/2". If you plan to carry your holder in your purse, make sure you use the heaviest cardstock you can find. Score your cardstock at 3/4", 4", 4 3/8", and 7 5/8". Adhere the two flaps on each end to the inside of the holder. Place adhesive on the back of your notebook and adhere it to the inside of the holder. I use Scor-pal tape because it's very strong. That's all there is to it. OK, I know Christmas is a long way off but I think these would make cute little stocking stuffers. Or how about one of these cuties for one of your child's teachers?
